Is There an Alternative to WhatsApp?

Episode 1760 (50:20)

Jeff from Piedmont, CA
WhatsApp

Jeff wants to know if WhatsApp is private. He's concerned that Facebook gets his data. Leo says that WhatsApp does share user information with Facebook. But if he's concerned about that, there are other options. Leo dislikes Facebook so much, he doesn't use any of their apps.

Telegram is a really nice choice. It's free and secure. If he's looking for REAL privacy, then there's SIGNAL. They don't share any personal information. What about LINE? Leo says that Line is very popular in Japan. Then there's Discord.

What Leo wishes is that Apple would open up Messages to Android. If they would do that, it would solve all this.
