Which also means those information may go to advertisers and many different agencies like CIA. After introducing to end-to-end encryption, WhatsApp announced about their user experience improvement program.
How to stop it?
No, you can’t. WhatsApp did create a opt-out system when they updated their new privacy terms but they also turned this opt-out system off in 30 days. So you can’t stop sharing your data with facebook.
What if I don’t have a Facebook account?
You don’t have to install Facebook to run WhatsApp – that’s what they said in their new terms and condition. But this doesn’t explain it will stop collecting your personal information and share it with someone else.
Is there any way to stop sharing my information?
No, if you are either WhatsApp user or Facebook user or Google user or any other internet giant website user, you are giving them access to your personal information while you don’t know a bit about it. Every internet giant website collect user data to improve search based results or interest based advertises. Which means your personal data is not safe. If you really want to stop sharing your personal information, stop using their services.
