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.

KakaoTalk, for those unfamiliar, is more or less the default messaging app of choice in Korea, but that doesn’t mean that if you don’t live in Korea you shouldn’t check it out. The app offers a lot of similar features as WhatsApp, like making video and voice calls. There are also additional features like scheduling chats with the built-in calendar, and also secret rooms that offer enhanced privacy.
