WhatsApp forces users to agree to share private data including phone number with Facebook

WhatsApp will begin forcing users to share personal data with Facebook, its parent company.

In an announcement sent out to users, WhatsApp declared users will have to agree to allow Facebook and its subsidiaries collect WhatsApp data, including user phone numbers, contacts’ phone numbers, location, and more.

If users do not agree by February 8, they will lose access.

The move urged calls for users to delete their WhatsApp accounts and switch to smaller encrypted messaging apps such as Signal and Telegram.
