However, users can partially opt-out from sharing the information, unfortunately, there is no way of totally opting out, aside from not using WhatsApp entirely; of course.
Existing users of WhatsApp will soon receive a notification update to the apps privacy terms & conditions. If you don’t want to share information with WhatsApp or Facebook, follow below steps:
- When you see the notification, don’t tap ‘Agree’, instead tap, ‘read’ which is highlighted in blue.
- You will then see a control at the bottom of the screen. If you do not want your account information shared with Facebook, you can uncheck the box.
