WhatsApp Now Shares Your Data with Facebook: How to Opt Out

Whatsapp has updated its Terms & Conditions to include data sharing with Facebook.
Since the Company has no plan to serve third party banner ads, it has rather decided to share user information with Facebook so ads can be better served, and to improve products experiences on Facebook which acquired Whatsapp in 2014.

Existing users who have accepted the updated Terms and Privacy Policy will have an additional 30 days to make the choice of opting out after accepting the new Terms & Conditions of use.


How do I choose not to share my account information with Facebook to improve my Facebook ads and products experiences?


There are two ways to do this:

Option 1

Before you tap Agree to accept our updated Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, tap Read.
You will see a control at the bottom of the screen. If you do not want your account information shared with Facebook to improve your Facebook ads and products experiences, you can uncheck the box or toggle the control.

Option 2

After you agree to our updated Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, you will have an additional 30 days to make this choice by going to Settings > Account > Share my account info in the app. If you do not want your account information shared with Facebook to improve your Facebook ads and products experiences, you can uncheck the box or toggle the control.
