How to stop sharing my WhatsApp Data with Facebook ?

With the new updated policy, WhatsApp will start sharing your account information with Facebook to improve Facebook ads and products experiences. You can opt out from sharing your information with Facebook

What information is being shared with Facebook ?

We plan to share some information with Facebook and the Facebook family of companies that will allow us to coordinate more, such as to fight spam and abuse, and improve experiences across our services and those of Facebook and the Facebook family. For example, once you have accepted our updated Terms and Privacy Policy, we will share some of your account information with Facebook and the Facebook family of companies, like the phone number you verified when you registered with WhatsApp, as well as the last time you used our service.

Nothing you share on WhatsApp, including your messages, photos, and account information, will be shared onto Facebook or any of the Facebook family of apps for others to see. lean more here
