In this pop-up, WhatsApp clearly shows that the upcoming update will arrive to make the data sharing compulsory.

From those above-mentioned points, if you check Others, on the Privacy Policy Page, if you are a Whatsapp Pay user, you’ll find Transactions and Payments Data. So, the company will collect the information of your Shipping Details, Payment Method, and Transaction Amount.

Next, WhatsApp will be well able to detect your general location using your IP address and Phone Number even if you don’t use their location services. As its reasons, WhatsApp has stated that the whole process is basically for diagnostic and troubleshooting purposes.

And last but not least, Whatsapp has strictly mentioned that the user has to follow the company’s newest agreement policy and continue using the service or he/she can just delete the account.
