In my continuing effort to eliminate all Facebook products and apps, it is now WhatsApp’s turn to be deleted from my phone. The latest scandal about the spyware possibilities which I read about today accelerated my decision. I shall delete (if that is possible) all the chats and data I have and turn everything off in an hour or so.
I am going to start using Telegram instead which is apparently far more secure. In fact I am downloading the App as this very moment.
In the meantime I have changed my mind and will go for Signal instead of Telegram. It is open source and even more secure.
