Beware of New WhatsApp Terms, Stop Them From Sharing Your Information With Facebook

This is not good at all, but I’d perceived this coming to fruition
earlier since when Facebook acquired Whatsapp for a whopping $21.8 billion in
2014. Now, Whatsapp will now start sharing your information with Facebook
including your Phone number.

If you don’t want Facebook
getting hold of your WhatsApp info, you can opt out in one of two ways.

Here’s how!

When WhatsApp updates, you’ll have to agree to its terms of
service all over again, but before you tap agree,
you can read more and opt out of sharing your information.
1.
Launch WhatsApp from your home screen or the app drawer.
2.
Tap the upward arrow in the bottom right corner to read more.
3.
Tap the checkbox to opt out of sharing your information with Facebook.

But, if you have already agreed to the terms of service, you
have 30 days to use the second method below to opt out
or else, you are on your own.
1.
Launch WhatsApp from your home screen or the app drawer.
2.
Tap the more button in the top right corner. It looks like three vertical
dots.
3.
Tap Settings>>Tap Account.
4Tap
the checkbox next to Share my account info.
…and you are good to go.
Your information’s are meant to be personal and not to be

  1. My prof, please am begging in the name of God am seriously in need of a e-book on how to go about everything blogging? Please can u help me with that – I want to open blog & I don't have enough money to buy e-book online. This is my email – [email protected]

  2. Even as we coordinate more with Facebook in the months ahead, your encrypted messages stay private and no one else can read them. Not WhatsApp, not Facebook, nor anyone else. We won’t post or share your WhatsApp number with others, including on Facebook, and we still won't sell, share, or give your phone number to advertisers.
