Alert: Stop Whatsapp From Violating Your Privacy - Here's How!!!

Do yo know that Whatsapp plans to start sharing your information with Facebook? information that includes your Phone number.
This - while wrong on so many levels, should not be surprising.

Ever since Facebook acquired Whatsapp back in 2014 for a stunning $21.8 billion, I just knew user's privacy would become a risk.

However, there is an out, If you do not want Facebook to get hold of your Whatsapp information, there are 2 ways you can opt out.

FIRST WAY

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.


SECOND METHOD


This method is for users who 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.

viola!
You have opted out!!!

Your privacy should remain private, Facebook should stop trying to stylishly breech our privacy and give out to third parties - IT IS UNCOOL!
