The popular messaging platform WhatsApp is updating its terms and conditions section in an attempt to further promote Facebook integration.

The new Ts and Cs are compulsory and users will have to agree that WhatsApp can share their data with the tech company or they face losing access to their accounts.

According to the company, these changes will officially come into effect from 8 February. So any user who has not agreed to the new terms will no longer be able to use the messaging service from that date.
