Why you should move from WhatsApp to Signal

WhatsApp recently changed its privacy policy publicly acknowledging that it will share data with other Facebook companies. But there is something else far more scary.

Disclaimer: My focus has been on broadly clarifying the main issue with WhatsApp’s new Privacy Policy change in simple terms. Hence, I might have ignored some technical details or might have even gotten a few details incorrect. Please message me or comment here if you find any mistake. I’ll be happy to incorporate any feedback.
