The catch is: if you don't agree, the messenger can no longer be used.

However, that doesn't quite seem to be the case, like an employee of the chat service on twitter writes. According to the tweets, nothing will change for users in Europe despite the changes to the terms of use.

If you still want to get out of the way of the chat app, in this article some alternatives.
