WhatsApp is not the best about privacy issues but it is still a good way to communicate fast, share texts, videos, pics etc.

Good messenger, much better than Viber which popular in my country. No spam. However its security features are wirse that those of telegramm where you do not have to share you phone number. However Telegram is not working stable without rpoxy in Russia and then it is when WhatsApp comes along

Facebook bought this company basically to spy on people (teens) not wanting to use FB or to keep their marketshare. Use Telegram or Signal instead to keep competition, also Telegram is the app WhatsApp copies.

Telegram is a better alternative. Still WhatsApp is pretty popular with older generations (50+).

I have lost confidence in WhatsApp a long time ago. And when Facebook bought the company. It was enough for me. Unfortunately many people that don't understand security well, still uses it. Also many business also use this app.

I like whatsapp because I can connect to my friends all around the world easily, I also like the group chats feature and the ease with which one can share media/documents/videos etc. Important to note/consider it's owned by Facebook.
