The news comes after the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) completed an investigation into WhatsApp and Facebook to determine whether WhatsApp may share user data with Facebook without violating British regulations.
Reports from ICO mention that Facebook and WhatsApp should not share data except basic data processing.
France has also asked Facebook and WhatsApp to stop sharing data, asking them to meet the demands within a month.
The decisions taken by France and Britain are rules that only protect their own citizens. However, when GDPR was inaugurated in May, regulations to protect the privacy of similar communities will cover the entire EU.
