The most noteworthy fact is that this in-app alert says that the new ToS will come into effect on May 15, 2021, and that failing to accept these terms would end up in users losing access to their accounts. The blog site, in a separate report earlier this week, had mentioned a similar timeline for the company’s new ToS. That said, we at HT Tech haven’t received any notification on our Android or iOS devices yet. But we will update you as soon as we get an update.
