    give me an alternative to WhatsApp

    I love to text, but always fear about the security of WhatsApp. I hear a lot about the company selling user data to Facebook. But what's a text app that's just as good?

    What exactly is your concern?

    Whatsapp has end-to-end encryption now. So basically no one can eavesdrop on your conversations without a man-in-the-middle kind of attack, which will also cause a security alert on receivers' ends (e.g., when i reset my phone, one of my contacts asked me to reconfirm my identity)

    There's surely more secure messaging apps out there, but the problem is hardly anyone one uses them... whatsapp + line are the big ones.

    I don't know...I just worry about privacy concerns. I feel like my data isn't my own. Has anyone used these? It also says: "Since the messenger service was purchased by Facebook, there have been a few notable issues with WhatsApp sharing private user data to its parent company."

    Do others not worry about privacy when they text?
