Once you switched off the toggle, you can restrict Facebook from using all your WhatsApp information. If you wish to check whether your use information button is by default on, you can check it by clicking on the setting and choose Account option. There will be different tabs like Privacy, Security, Change number, etc. You will also notice Share my account info with a tick box. If it is already ticked, then it means you are agreeing for data sharing with other companies. But if you don’t want to share it, then untick this box.
