WhatsApp has started sending new in-app notifications to users, reminding them to accept the new terms of services and privacy policies. The Facebook messaging app was supposed to roll out its new privacy policy by February 8. But it was delayed to May 15 when users' started raising privacy concerns.

There were concerns that Whatsapp would share users' private conversations with Facebook. Many WhatsApp users shifted to other messaging apps like Telegram and Signal as well.

However, WhatsApp issued multiple clarifications saying that the chats are end-to-end encrypted and no one other than the receiver and sender has access to the chats, not even WhatsApp. The Facebook-owned messaging app took the help of various ways to educate people about the new privacy policy.

Now users, report that they have started getting new notification from the company, to accept the privacy policies by May 15.
