What if you aren’t impressed with this improved experience ad don’t want WhatsApp to share your phone number with Facebook? Don’t worry. You have the option to opt out this whole rigmarole.
If you’ve mistakenly accepted those new terms, you still have 30 more days to opt out. Just go to settings, and tap the account tab. At the bottom of the screen, there is a checkbox saying “Share my account info.” Uncheck the box to opt out.
In case you don’t have a Facebook account, this new terms and conditions will not affect your privacy. WhatsApp is sharing your phone number only with Facebook, not with any individual company.
