    WhatsApp has updated its privacy policy, and the app now mandates data sharing with Facebook. Don't want to do so? You'll have to stop using the app.

    Well, nevermind then! Facebook continues to be over-bearing and to exhibit double standards.

    I don’t have, and never have had, a Facebook account, but I do use WhatsApp. Does this mean my data will still be passed to Facebook even without an account?

    Looks like I’ll have to try Signal then, as a lot of people I know have recommended it as a really good alternative.

    Yup ! I was told by a boffin that you can never clean your phone completely of Facebook, even if you have never had an account with them, since FB and Twatter were once built into Apple, I remember them being non-removable from Settings.
