WhatsApp users who are in a dilemma can wait until May to accept the new terms and conditions. The Facebook-owned messaging platform, WhatsApp, took to Twitter to announce this. As per the company, it will use this time to clear all the confusion and misinformation that exists right now. They will give clarity on how privacy and security terms will work.
WhatsApp said in a tweet that the company will give people the time to review the policy gradually until May 15, 2021. So, there is no need to panic about the new terms immediately as there is enough time to decide.
We will make sure users have plenty of time to review and understand the terms. Rest assured we never planned to delete any accounts based on this and will not do so in the future.

Let’s see whether the delay will bring the users’ trust back to WhatsApp or not. It is worth mentioning here that soon after the condition imposed by the WhatsApp, people start switching to other alternatives especially on Telegram. Similarly, to help the confused users in Pakistan, the government has decided to develop its own messaging app. The app will be called Smart Office. It will work like WhatsApp and will be ready to use by June this year.
