Don’t want WhatsApp to share your number with Facebook? Here’s how

Several days ago, WhatsApp announced that in an effort to serve you more relevant ads, it will be sharing your phone number with Facebook. Needless to say, this left a sour taste in the mouths of many users. Fortunately, there seems to be two ways to bypass this.

The first is tap ‘Read More’ when the new terms of service pops up when you start WhatsApp, and uncheck the box that says ‘Share my WhatsApp account information with Facebook…’.

If you’ve already agreed to the new terms of service, fret not, as you still have 30 days to manually go into the Settings menu, go into your Account tab, and uncheck the ‘Share my WhatsApp account information…’ box.
