WhatsApp has announced changes to its terms of service from February 8, 2021. Users must agree to the changes, or they won’t be able to use WhatsApp from Feb 8, 2021.
It has further added that it does not keep logs of user’s messages and calls as it considers it would be ‘a privacy and security risk’ and does not share your contacts with other apps from Facebook.
WhatsApp cannot see your shared location and neither can Facebook.
WhatsApp shares the phone number, transaction data, service-related information, usage data, mobile device information and IP address.
If you share your live location with a friend, that information is not transmitted to Facebook. However, WhatsApp does gather approximate location data which is given away by your phone number and IP address
The latest update will only affect the messages sent to business accounts on WhatsApp, which it adds is an optional feature.
