In addition to this, telegram also offers a secret chat option. By using that, your messages will disappear after the period you select. For example, it could be 5s, 10s, or more.

Telegram also offers the folders in their app. In these folders, you can save your data just like you do on mobile phones.

Should I quit using WhatsApp?

The answer is no. Peoples have a concern about this WhatsApp privacy policy update. let me one thing clear that Whatsapp will not share your personal chat with someone or even with Facebook. They will not public your chat groups and other data.

This new update means that Whatsapp will share data for business purposes. Also, I’m not sure but maybe ZUk is planning to runs ads on Whatsapp. This data will help Whatsapp artificial intelligence to make these ads more effective by showing relevant ads to the user who has an interest in it.

Whatsapp has released a press release today that their user data is protected and there are some rumors about privacy policy. So you don’t need to panic about this WhatsApp privacy policy update. Just enjoy Whatsapp and chat with friends.

Trust me, Facebook or Whatsapp officials don’t have enough time to read or public their users’ chats or read out it. So have fun with Whatsapp.
