This is just an option. I didn't allow WhatsApp to share data with Facebook and thats it.
When I came to know about this I immediately disabled this feature and so many of my friends too. You know what I did not like about them was they did this move in a very silent and sneaky way. Many ordinary people they did not even notice it! If Whatsapp does not remove this completely I am for sure (and many others too I believe) will move to Telegram or other honest messaging provider.
deewinc, 27 Aug 2016Telegram all the waySame as deeewinc. Telegram all the way
I'm good with Slack . Switch to slack ..you can share every file exe, apk etc
I would have actually preferred to have an option to PAY whatsapp an annual fee, insted of this data sharing.
Dunno why simply paying for use is not even an option. Why this circuitous route to profits
Anything related to Facebook means lost of security and privacy! Simple as that that's why telegram is my choice
After sometimes facebook will be "Adbook" advertisement book...hahaha
they wants million billion dollers by filling users account,profile,timeline by advertisement.
