    They have extended the deadline till May now.

    So far Signal is the closest competitor but I doubt if many people will leave whatsapp.

    Like #SID_NY wrote Essentially, this means Facebook will be able to access account information including your phone number, information on how you interact with other users, and logs of how often and how long you use WhatsApp.

    Other data that could be shared with Facebook includes your IP address, browser details, language and time zone.

    WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook in 2014, and has shared data with its parent company since 2016.

    It's an annoyance but not more than that

    The bigger problem is Facebook sharing the data with other companies. Which companies, how many companies etc we dont know. Those who are aware know the Cambridge Analytics saga in 2016.

    And no this is not your social media data, this is your cell phone data. i.e. All contacts etc and at some later point may be messages too.

    I'm strongly considering to uninstall it. Many of my groups are already moving to Signal

    Honestly I'm not bothered by it. They can snoop on me all they want..I really don't care. All I care about is the best user experience.

    That is just another storm in a tea cup. After all the hue and cry, only negligible number of people will actually uninstall Whatsapp for good. However, I will love to learn about alternatives and what they offer.

    started a topic Whatsapp

    Whatsapp

    Have you accepted their new terms & conditions?

    Many people are determined to leave whatsapp before Feb 08th which is their last date to accept the T&C

    As per what I read in those conditions, FB, the buyer of whatsapp will now be able to use all your contact information as well as share this info with any companies they want for "marketing" purposes.
Working...
