What I got today was "WHATSAPP FORCES USERS TO AGREE TO SHARE PRIVATE DATA, INCLUDING PHONE NUMBER WITH FACEBOOK". https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/ga...y-b1783880.html That's all. Can't cancel but to accept it only or else can't proceed to use the App.

WhatsApp is a must, especially for businesses nowadays, other messaging App just not up to it in terms of users crowd.

It is likely 1 of the Chrome extension or plugin. Can check your Chrome extension by going to chrome://extensions/
I'm curious...

I think you missunderstood.
WhatsApp didn't integrated with Chrome.

Chrome always show the app you recently shared link to.
I believe you recently shared a link from Chrome to WhatsApp,
that why you are seeing the WhatsApp icon.

Try to share link from Chrome to whatever app, like Facebook/Telegram/Messenger.
You will found that the icon will changed to the app

----------------
P/S: Had you been using iOS for a very long and this is your first time using Android?

I installed Signal few days back. It is gaining traction, can see my contact list in Signal growing fast in just 3 days. As more people go on Signal, the usage will start shifting there. In terms of user experience, 99% same (from my point of view).

/another paranoid dude...
if you click the icon, it will show the list of the app, instead of just whatsapp..

I mean, google and facebook/whatsapp regularly analyze your data and share with their partner anyway lol sweat.gif

It says that they are keeping the data even after deleting the app? That's a very bad move by Whatsapp.
I'm sure that they will lose their reputation with this new privacy policy.
