Facebook Whatsapp Tilt
In case you missed it, WhatsApp will henceforth share your private data with Facebook. In this post, we'll be guiding you through opting out of the bond if you already opted-in or prevent you from opting in altogether.
WhatsApp details two ways to opt out of sharing data for Facebook ad targeting on its blog here.
Firstly if you haven't already agreed to the new T&Cs you can opt out before agreeing to the new terms by tapping to read the full terms of service and privacy policy - and scrolling to a control at the bottom of the document - where there's a check-box option for sharing the data which you then untick before hitting agree...

There you go, no more data collection by the data mining Facebook!
