Data sharing with third party apps

Waze may offer you the option to link Waze to third party services that may be useful to you (like audio partners). If you choose to connect the accounts, Waze will ask for your permission to share data with the third party service.

Sharing with the third party service will continue for as long as the Waze app and the third party app are open (including where Waze or the third party app continues to run in the background) and will restart when you next open the Waze app and the third party app.

For audio apps, you can disable this sharing at any time in your Waze settings under Settings > Audio player by toggling off the desired audio app.

The following data may be shared with audio apps you choose to link with Waze:

  • ETA information (estimated time of arrival)
  • Route information (e.g., street names)
  • Distance to next turn
  • Next turn instructions (right, left, straight, etc.)

Note: The third party service use of the data made available by Waze is governed by the respective third party service privacy policy and is controlled by the respective third party service, not by Waze. Therefore, even if you choose to delete your Waze account, the third party service may still have the data you have shared with them. For details about removing this data please contact the respective third party service.

In addition, Waze may receive information about you from third party service and will use such information only in accordance with the Waze privacy policy.
