Elon Musk has urged people to use the privacy-focussed messaging app Signal after WhatsApp forced users to agree to controversial new terms and conditions.
The new terms will mean that private data collected by WhatsApp, including a user’s IP address and phone number, will be shared with Facebook.
The technology billionaire, who overtook Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to become the richest person in the world on Thursday, also shared a meme highlighting Facebook’s perceived attitude towards user privacy. ( The Independent)
