- A response to WhatsApp’s actions has been overwhelming, with millions of users switching to more secure apps such as Telegram and Signal.
What should’ve been a mundane update quickly turned into a significant problem for WhatsApp. Instead of opting for transparency and user-friendly language, this company decided to present an intrusive notification within the app, forcing users to accept the new changes without much explanation. The notification also advised those who disagree with the new policy changes to delete their account, further complicating this entire situation.
What will change is your communication with businesses, which won’t be encrypted, and whose data will be freely shared between WhatsApp and its parent company (Facebook).
