    I left Facebook many years ago. Left WhatsApp recently after they took out their new privacy policy which outright says they're selling our information and we must be okay with it. Switched to Signal. Surprisingly it wasn't very difficult to convince my friends and even older family relatives to switch over.

    Threema is indeed the best of them all, but considering it costs money, you'll never get all of your contacts to use Threema.

    FYI: if you do want more privacy/security, then the alternative is not Telegram, but Signal/Wire/Threema. Telegram's privacy/security is even worse. Telegram is only good if you like a ton of features/stickers and that sort of stuff. Though, the community there is big too, but for security/privacy? No. See here: https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...t-due-to-privacy.1386299/page-5#post-22754512

    The old-good whatsapp alternative Oneplus have is your Messenger for SMS/MMS.

    Not very good also as far as privacy is concerned (end to server to end instead of end to end encryption by default ("secret messages" are OK though but you have to select the option when you first text a person) and no possible encrypted group message) but anything is better than Facebook crap!

    Everyone move on over to telegram it's the best massaging app out there. I have been on it for years and it's fast, secure, and fun even. Boys to help your channel or group. Really large group chats are possible for you your friends clients employees. Just give it a try and never go back.

    There is something for everyone on telegram.
