WhatsApp will begin sharing your phone number and other data with Facebook. Don’t want this information shared? You can opt out.
Before you accept WhatsApp's new terms and conditions, click on the "read more" option which appears on the notification and uncheck the "Share my WhatsApp account information with Facebook..." option.
If you've already accepted the updated terms and conditions, you still have 30 days to opt out by opening the app and going to Settings > Account.
As mobile integration becomes more deeply baked into our daily lives, the sharing of information between apps and services will become more and more personal and in-depth. Ensure that you stay up to date with the sharing practices of your most used apps and online services and always read the terms and conditions.Looking for a new contract phone?
