    Same here @psygarden, I use WhatsApp for now mostly because of my contacts. Already switched to Telegram for all online contents.

    There are some people who simply won't budge, and it's because of them that I am here - still using whatsapp. I wish things were different but alas :oops:

    Privacy matters, only until it's convenient.

    It took a million years to get the family together in WA group. It'll take another million to convince everyone to migrate to another platform. So apparently I'm stuck in a dysfunctional relationship cuz I have subzero love for FB/Insta but keep hanging around anyway

    No thanks 😂

    Yes the community is much more secure. I would never use a platform where anyone could see what I wrote..... Oh wait..... :p

    Wow you found a post that is over two years old.

    My honest answer to your question.....
    Yes I would be very interested if OnePlus entered the glider market but only for me to watch at a safe distance 😂

    I stayed.

    I don't know if they go down to device identity to "connect"users but I have never used the same email for the three services and I have not added telephone to Facebook or Instagram.

    I have also read that they already share the message metadata which makes privacy limited in any case.

    All that having been said WhatsApp works better than most VoIP / video services that I have tried
