How to stop WhatsApp sharing your details with Facebook

If, like me, you have recently wondered how to stop WhatsApp sharing your details with Facebook well the team at WhatsApp seem to have already provided this (we hope). So lets us put aside our thoughts of deleting whatsapp entirely, for now, and whilst some of us have paid for a lifetime of “private, no-ads” service, it is still early days yet and this option maybe enough to give us some level of comfort..? Maybe??

Process to stop the data sharing

  1. Dont immediately agree to the ‘policy change’ when you see it in whatsapp
  2. Click the  “read more about the key updates to our Terms and Privacy Policy”
Whatsapp Agreement screen 1 select 'read more' to unshare data with facebook

3) Untick the “share my whatsapp account information with Facebook to improve my Facebook ads and product experiences.” (because, you know, our facebook experiences are already so awesome that we would willingly sign up for more targeted advertisements etc)

I just received the above messages today on my android phone EE network in the UK (26/08) however it only prompted me after a phone restart.

 

How to factory reset a Netscaler SDX device

Whilst this is relatively self explanatory there are a few things around doing this that are useful to know

Log into the SDX and go to Configuration > Management Service > Backup Files > Action > Factory Reset

sdx_factoryreset

You will be presented with the following three options

sdx_factoryreset_options

Explained here:

Reset (Without Network Configuration)—Retain the IP addresses of the Management Service and XenServer. This option destroys all VPX’s also wipes the licence file, certificates but keeps the current active firmware of SDX. It also keeps the SDX network configurations like LACP bondings

Reset (With Network Configuration)—Management Service and XenServer restart with the default IP addresses (192.168.100.1 for the SDX Management and 192.168.100.2 for Xenserver)  This option destroys all VPX’s also wipes the licence file, certificates but keeps the current active firmware of SDX.

Appliance Reset—Completely wipe out the device. Loose everything configured (network, certs, vpx’s, licenses etc) but also the appliance reverts its firmware to what it was delivered with.
