Author Topic: New WhatsApp policy. Must have punting phone  (Read 3551 times)

For those who still think it's not important to have a punting phone, read this...

Basically, if you call a WG from a phone number which is registered to WhatsApp, next time she logs onto Facebook it's going to say "Do you know...?"

Get yourself a basic old non data phone if you value your anonymity.

hopefully it doesn't back date, otherwise folks without punting phones are screwed either way lol

The MHPP mantra is yet again re-inforced.  Thanks for the intel.  I'll uncheck anyways even though FB not on punting mobile.  WA does have its benefits - often different / natural pics showing.  And some burds like using for texts / calls as free

Just Head to the app's settings menu, and then press the account tab. From there, you can uncheck the box reading "Share my account info" to stop providing Facebook with your user data.

Pretty simple to do

You'll get a new T&Cs pop up when the upgrade arrives, that will give the option to opt out

Reading the link it isn't clear whether the opt out will prevent the issues that would most concern us .... just seems to be an option out from targeted marketing rather than helping our "friends" find us.

Last straw for Facebook with me ... it's just fucking evil ... have deleted my Facebook account today. Not that I ever really used it anyway

Must confess have done the odd text or call on my work phone but now need to replace my old puntering phone with a smart phone as I would prefer to be able to browse and use WhatsApp.

So here is my logic, set up a "cheapish" smart phone using a specific mail address used for punting, could use the one I have set up to access AW or this site.  When doing punts, put the girl in as a contact so easy to manage but then delete or periodically do a factory reset. Only have the contacts on the phone, i.e. don't sync it with any email accounts.

Obviously Punting phone would not be used for Facebook

Anything that I am missing or tips that anyone can provide ?

I saw this mentioned on the BBC News, doesn't affect me as I always use a basic punting phone but thanks for the info as it might help others.

I have no interest in Facebook or its rivals either, total boring brain rotting sites in my view who know more about some people than their own family and friends do. This insidious way of monitoring people isn't healthy in my opinion. :thumbsdown:

Always been wary of it - once had a WG in my main phone contacts - and FB can access these too

Up she popped in the people I may know

Also had new followers from real life want to see my naughty twitter account cos I accessed it on the main phone using an app

Very scary

More worryingly you may pop up on hers

There is no need to whatsapp a hooker, a simple call or text will suffice

All these so called fancy apps are pointless and unnecessary for punting.

I've done fine with out these apps.

I use several basic (non smart) punting phone for calls and texts.

Apparently it's being looked into by the UK data watchdog.

It's plain out of order. I purposely don't have my phone no linked in any way or form to Facebook. That's now could be totally undermined by whatsApp.

Precisely ... that's why I've deleted my Facebook account .... George Orwell couldn't have thought up an bunch worse than them.

Not always but generally they are used by punters who want to chat with hookers and exchange photos and generally blow smoke up their arses, in short the sort of punter who confuses punting with dating

All for someone whom they would only see for an hour or so on a given day.

Yep but let's not forget that some punters actually think they have friendships with the girls they see some on this forum relay messages back to them about threads that may have info on the girl.

Cheers for that, I had no idea that app would share data with Facebook like that.  :scare:

Offline raylondoner

Just got my update today which had default as "share" (which I turned off), so this was worth knowing, not that I use that phone for punting though  :hi:
