For the longest time people have asked why I don’t use Whatsapp? As someone who sees the flaws and reads the terms/conditions, I was never happy with the use of data. In the last few days its become much clearer with Whatsapp privacy change forcing you to accept the changes or stop using it (no opt out).
The core issue with the change is…
In some cases, such as when someone uses WhatsApp to interact with third-party businesses, Facebook may also share information with those outside entities.
Ok so they can’t read your (signal) encrypted messages but like we learned a long time ago, the metadata is sometimes tells more than the actual message.
Surely its time to switch?!
No? Remember this… dumb f**ks.
