Addressing one of the biggest concerns about "group privacy," WhatsApp in the Security and Privacy section of its website states: "We don't share this data with Facebook for ads. Again, these private chats are end-to-end encrypted, so we can't see their content."

For "additional privacy," it suggested that users change message settings to "disappear from chats after you send them" for " additional privacy." Complete steps on how to accomplish this have been shared on its website.
