     There are grounds for criticizing the WhatsApp messenger in the lack of control over the security of users' private information and even in their willingness to share this data with special services. But the same can be said - to a greater or lesser extent - about other messengers and social networks, including Telegram, experts interviewed by Prime say. In an era of a privacy crisis, one should either come to terms with the fact that privacy is no longer private, or disable WhatsApp along with the “parent” Facebook and other programs, or try to at least partially protect your data yourself, they advise.

    Earlier, the creator of Telegram Pavel Durov criticized the WhatsApp messenger because of security problems. "WhatsApp not only does not protect your messages, this application is constantly used as a Trojan horse to track photos and messages that are not related to the messenger," he said in his Telegram channel. According to Durov, the problem lies in the Facebook policy that owns WhatsApp, as well as in the features of the program itself, intentionally built into the developer. He advised everyone who wants privacy to remove this messenger from their phone.

    This is not the first time that Durov has criticized WhatsApp for security holes, explaining them by the desire of the messenger, as well as the "parent" Facebook, to share information with everyone who claims to be working for the government. Undoubtedly, all messengers, including Telegram, are vulnerable to a certain extent, but what WhatsApp admits cannot be explained by technical flaws, he is sure.
