A dark fate for WhatsApp and expectations of a major migration from WhatsApp
The site indicated that there are 3 reasons that led and will lead to the reluctance of users from WhatsApp, and these reasons were as follows.
The first reason It belongs to WhatsApp’s ownership of Facebook, where the company purchased WhatsApp in 2014 for 16 billion dollars, and then confirmed its full commitment to protecting user data and maintaining a matter of privacy, and it remained so until the end of last year, after WhatsApp announced new terms of privacy, Including sharing data with Facebook, which sparked great anger at the time, which made the application retract this matter and confirmed that private messages are protected and encrypted and this update will not affect them.
And the second reason What will lead to users migrating to WhatsApp, is the matter of collecting information, as WhatsApp collects your phone number and device identifiers as well as the version you are using in the operating system, the country code and platform information, and this is of course unlike what the Signal application does, which does not collect any information, and the application Telegram.
Migration from WhatsApp to Telegram and Signal
As for the third reason It goes back to the partnership between Facebook and WhatsApp, which last week led to a major malfunction that led to a complete interruption of service for a period of more than 6 hours from the whole world, which made users flee from it to other, safer applications, and experts expect that the Telegram and Signal application will be the The most widely used in the coming years, due to their trust and reliability and not sharing user data.
