Using WhatsApp without shelter?

Hi, i live in Ecuador where 99% of communication with people and businesses works with WhatsApp. Not using it is not an option without paying an enormous price in time and convenience.

I have seen the discussion about using shelter in order to prevent WhatsApp (Meta) to have access on all my contact data.

My question: What else does WhatsApp steal of my data? Can I run WhatsApp without shelter and just manage consciously which data are found in my contacts?

Thanks Demian
PS: I am not tech savy and would like to avoid all unnecessary tech pit falls.
