Considering it unsafe, a number of users decided to uninstall WhatsApp and shift to alternatives, like Signal, Telegram, etc.
Following are some glimpses of how the public reacted to this new policy update.
Is Whatsapp unsafe to use now?
While signing up for Facebook, Instagram, or Whatsapp, a user already agrees on sharing his information with the companies. The information is then given to the advertisers.
Also, shifting to a new app like Signal, Telegram, etc. would mean sharing your information with these companies too.
The day someone has joined social media platform, he has already compromised on his privacy.
So, there is no point in showing concerns for using free products.
‘If you’re not paying for the product, you are the product’.
