Stop Whatsapp from Sharing your INFO with Facebook

Hello Readers,

You must have noticed that Whatsapp have updated their terms and privacy policy recently. You are presented with a screen popup with an AGREE button to accept Whatsapp’s new terms and privacy policy.

You need to agree to this before 25th September 2016 to continue using Whatsapp.

WhatsApp has changed their terms and conditions to sell your data over to Facebook.

Please don’t just click Agree. Click on “Read”. It will open up another page where it allows you to SWITCH OFF THE OPTION TO SHARE YOUR DATA. After that, then click AGREE. Whatsapp is banking on the fact that most users don’t read terms and conditions and just click AGREE.

    

Don’t worry if you’ve already accepted those new terms. You’ve still got few days to opt out. Just navigate to Whatsapp’s settings menu, and then press the account tab. From there, you can uncheck the box reading “Share my account info” to stop providing Facebook with your account.

Below are the series of steps you need to do to stop Whatsapp from sharing your INFO with Facebook.

Note:

If you do not agree with their new policy then you will not be able to continue their service. So you are left with two choices:

  1. Either use whatsapp by agreeing to their policy. OR
  2. Uninstall the app.

Apart from uninstalling the app, unchecking the checkbox in your Whatsapp’s account section is the only way, you can stop whatsapp from sharing your info with facebook. 

I hope you found this information useful. Please share it with your friends and make them aware too.
