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.

Building on the above where if you don’t want to hand out your phone number just to chat with someone, Keybase could be another messenger app worth considering. There is no need for you to give your phone number or email address to be added, so if you want, you can remain (nearly) anonymous.

The platform offers end-to-end encryption so you can chat in private knowing that no one will be able to intercept or read your messages, and also store files like photos, videos, and documents securely.
