Whatsapp Policy Changes @2016: Steps to do after accepting the policy

According to the new Whatsapp policy your WhatsApp and Facebook
profiles will be connected. The reason whatsapp gives is, they want to
“coordinate more and improve experiences”…
That means Your phone number will be shared with Facebook „to fight spam, abuse and copyright infringement, as well as for security“,
but it won’t be made public on the social network.
The content of your messages also won’t be shared because they’ll continue to be encrypted.
(We believe it only for the time, because, Whatsapp has proven that they won‘t keep their promise.)

Anyway, if you’ve already hit „Agree“ the policy, you can
(I would say you must) do the following:

– go to Settings > Account >and untick ‘Share my Account Info’.

Do it as soon as possible.

It may help you to prohibit the sharing of some of your datas.
