While some of the updates are reasonable and not much worrying, there are some that have created a lot of buzz on the social media platforms.
Irrespective of the fact the user is using location-related features or not, Whatsapp will still collect IP addresses and other information like phone number area codes to estimate your general location (city, country).
To make things more controversial, deleting the app will not mean that your data will also be deleted but will be stored in one of Facebook’s global data centres, including the ones in the US.
