How To Stop Whatsapp From Sharing Your Information To Facebook

This  would have been a very big tragedy to whatsapp and facebook users if wo did not notice it on time.Thank God for tech bloggers , if not we could have falling into big risk.

According to facebook they stated that they want to share phone number information to facebook in other to improve ads and product on facebook.But am not pretty sure that this is the only reason for them to share the information because they are showing ads respectively and their ads service is currently ok

WhatsApp’s updated policy means that the company will also provide users’ device information, including type of operating system and other smartphone characteristics. Facebook will employ the phone number only internally to identify WhatsApp users better, so it can help advertisers with their target groups.

The ads would come through a special Facebook program called “Custom Audiences,” which lets a company upload consumer data on Facebook. Facebook then matches the list with its list of customers and shows them tailored ads. User data is not given out to advertisers.

The good thing is that you have the ability to stop WhatsApp from handing out your information to Facebook For Now because after september you wont be able to make the decision any more, so if you happened to have unknowingly agreed to the new WhatsApp's terms of service, then its not too late to opt out.
