Recently, Facebook-owned WhatsApp announced that they will be making some changes to its privacy policy in which they will begin sharing data with Facebook. The company had previously introduced these changes, but gave users an option to opt-out (if they were aware of it).

These new changes basically states that there is no more option to opt-out and that if you want to keep using WhatsApp, you’ll have no choice but to agree with these changes. If that makes you feel a bit uncomfortable, then here are some of the best alternatives to WhatsApp that we’ve found.

With WhatsApp facing backlash over its privacy policy changes, one app that has benefited from this is Signal. The company behind Signal actually started off by creating an end-to-end encryption service that is used by companies like WhatsApp.

In fact, the company was co-founded by Brian Acton, who some of you might know as WhatsApp’s co-founder.

Pretty much everything in Signal is encrypted, like calls, group calls, backups, and more. The app also doesn’t link data to your identify, so there should not be any identifiable information even if there were a breach.
