How to access and download all of the information associated with your WhatsApp account.

The data and information about your account that WhatsApp has access to are now available for download. Learn how to make use of WhatsApp's Request Account Information tool.

Because of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which exposed some loopholes that allowed Facebook to collect and sell users' data, the European Union (EU) enacted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a privacy regulation that requires certain platforms to provide users with access to the information they have provided to them.

That is why WhatsApp included a feature in its instant messaging program that allows users to examine the information that the company collects on them. The tool is referred to as "Request Account information," and it can be found under the Settings section of the app. When you click on "Request Account Info," WhatsApp will allow you to download and export a copy of all of the information it has collected on you. Personal information about your contacts, phone number, phone specifics (device name, model, and IMEI), profile image, group names, account settings, and other information are all examples of this type of data.

Look over here for details on using the Request Account Information tool on WhatsApp to access all of the information that WhatsApp has about you. Before we go any further, it's important to note that the exported account information you'll receive from WhatsApp will not contain any of your personal messages.

(Pocket-lint) - WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, allows users to download and view the information it collects.

The feature was revealed ahead of the implementation of the European Union's data privacy legislation, which took effect on May 25, 2018. In addition, it allows you to request and download a report of your WhatsApp account settings and information, which includes your contacts as well as your profile photo and group names.
