This is the report of your WhatsApp data that you can download

WhatsApp Messenger continues to offer new updates to its users in order to improve their user experience . Renew or die, that seems to be the main premise of its developers.

Recently we saw how WhatsApp offered three very interesting new features for iOS and Android. Shortly thereafter, the developer of the instant messaging application incorporated a feature to demote administrators within group conversations.

And now, after all the controversy surrounding privacy on Facebook , WhatsApp Messenger now request that you accept their new terms and conditions to comply with the new regulation GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which will take effect from May 25 of 2018 .

From now on you can request a report on your data stored on WhatsApp

The new regulation will affect all your social networks, such as Facebook, and offers users more control over their data on the Internet . In this way, much more protection, transparency and uniformity is ensured.

    WhatsApp beta for Android 2.18.128: the GDPR option is available. You can request your report now!

That is why WhatsApp will now have a new option known as "Download my data", as reported by WABetaInfo . It will be available in the configuration settings section of your account as "Request info. of my account "and it will allow you to download the data that the company has stored and collected about you .

By selecting the option, you can request a report of your data from the WhatsApp servers. The report may take up to 20 days to arrive .

What data does the report reveal?

When the report finally reaches you, you will be able to see all the data that WhatsApp has stored about you. This is all the information you can see:

    Phone number
    First name
    Connection status
    Time you take online
    IP connection, current and past
    Type of device
    App version
    Version of your operating system

In the images that we have attached you will be able to see all this data in more detail. This is a measure that will appease the mood of the users after all the uproar caused by the sale of Facebook data to Cambridge Analytica.
