WhatsApp's new terms of service involve sharing data with Facebook — there's no way to use the service without agreeing to share data with the social network. The policy change means now is the right time to switch to a messaging platform like Signal or Telegram.
WhatsApp is now linked to Facebook, and you won't be able to use the app unless you share a lot of data with Facebook. Thankfully, Signal is a privacy-focused alternative that has most of the same features, and it is easy to move your group chats from WhatsApp to Signal.
