“We are postponing the date when users will be prompted to view and accept the terms (user agreement updates).

No one will have their account suspended or deleted until February 8, ”the Facebook-owned messenger said.

The messenger notes that the update implementation date has been postponed from February 8 to May 15.

WhatsApp previously updated the user agreement, adding a clause on the transfer of personal data to Facebook, which caused a negative reaction from users of the messenger.

Earlier it was reported that Turkey's anti-monopoly committee launched an investigation into WhatsApp and Facebook due to their new privacy policy.
