    Here's a good alternative:

    Threema.

    https://threema.ch/en/


    It is an app that is made in Switzerland, the servers are there and it uses modern encryption. All messages and private data are stored encrypted on the phone and not on their servers.

    OR

    Another alternative: Telegram

    The problem with all of these is getting your loved ones and contacts to make the move with you.

    I tried getting friends to use telegram but just way too much effort.

    Plus the mobile phone carriers in my country give free unlimited WhatsApp with your data plan. So really hard to get people to migrate.

    Some countries even use WhatsApp for business contact. IE Brazil

    This is all speculation and useless information as this should be common knowledge.

    We should be all aware that some information is being used, this is not something specific for Whatsapp either, it's your entire phone, PC or whatever device you have that is connected to the internet. If you want your privacy to be secured then you better live like a caveman. No internet, no smartphones etc.

    There is absolutely no reason to ditch whatsapp, since there is absolutely no way people are interested in your messages anyways. The very idea that there are a bunch of people would want to read through billions of private messages each hour to find some useful information is downright ludicrous.

    The fact that people think that big companies are interested in peoples private lives just showcases that the sheer amount of delusion and self centeredness is so insane that it makes some people panic for no reason. In reality companies are only interested in anonymous data such as what sites are being visited in certain regions, where people tend to go and so on for marketing purposes.

    So honestly stop, companies are not interested in your private life, they couldn't care less. If you think otherwise you might want to fix your delusion boys.

    You have absolutely zero idea the extent that companies will go to in order to get every last bit of detail they can in order to sell to you.

    You are the one that needs to stop using all of the privacy invasions in your life, delete them from your phone, change your phone OS if needed.

    Learn how to be a network and system administrator that can adeptly detect privacy intrusions - network intrusions through malware and telemetry.

    You need to stop living like a caveman using futuristic hardware and software, progress into the future and understand what you really have and are using. Learn not to burn!! Fire burns, but Fire also cooks some darned nice BBQ. :)

    You are the caveman, you are the problem, telling people to "give up" it's all too hard and too tough to learn.

    You are the limiting factor for people needing to progress from realization through to actualization - being in control of their digital presence and able to protect their online persona.

    You are confusing your desire for retreating backwards into yesterday, instead of dealing with today's need to keep learning and progressing forward. You are just too damned lazy!! :D

    Instead of telling people to run back into their caves, or to hide their heads in the sand and ignore their problems, instead do the work needed to learn enough to give them the information and assistance they need to travel safely into into their future.

    It's like a kindergarden kid trying to tell a math professor he has no idea about math.

    Delusion at its finest.

    What you're suggesting is paying billions of USD for a couple extremely unlikely messages that somehow will give you 1 extra sale. What you basicially said was the same as someone saying a company will start drilling a huge hole in your garden because there is a 0.000000000000000000000000000001% change of striking oil.

    The amount of absolute ignorance is absolutely insane. Absolutely no company that has any type of success would EVER spend billions in a tiny chance of sale.

    @hmscott
    Did you tape your webcam? Scared of someone hacking your webcam? You better tape that webcam if you haven't already bruh. you're obviously so important that people would risk tons of jailtime to spionage on you. You are the pinnacle and worth going jail for.

    The sheer amount of stupidity is downright scary.

    Cluelessness is becoming your specialty, apparently.

    Taping your webcam is the low tech way; you need to disable the webcam physically - in fact it's a requirement at secure client sites that want laptop models that come with webcam's but webcam's aren't allowed on site - so they are physically stripped / disabled.

    Most secure sites no longer allow laptops with webcam's to be ordered, and are not allowed on site.

    You are viciously defending ignoring the obvious, it's really hard to reach someone like you with their head so far up their obliviousness they can't see that the camera's are up there with them.

    lets spend billions to sell 10 extra sneakers.

    I'm the ignorant one :rolleyes:

    Best ROI ever. The amount of sheer stupidity is outstanding.

    Also so you cut the wires instead? :'D
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

    Seriously you're borderline crazy. It's extremely hard to tell deluded self centered people what reality is, luckily there are many many normal minded people out there who look at facts and use their brain.

    At first they get poisoned by the poison deluded people are spreading then getting healed again by research and logic. Usually when people did their research and start to understand how absolutely insane some statements are and realize that some people are beyond help, that then they either start igorning the crazy people or simply mock them.
