WhatsApp is changing its privacy policy giving Facebook (that owns it) more data. I don't use WhatsApp often and mostly it's for text messages to a friend in the UK. If I changed to a different app, which one would be the best?

Signal is really good - I believe it was started by the same engineers that originally worked on WhatsApp, and is much more privacy focused and secure. Its becoming quite widespread too.

I know people also quite like Telegram, though I've heard a few stories that it isn't all too secure

I think I am the last one on Earth who only uses my phone to text and call, since I have no idea what this App did.

I only knew about it because I have a friend in the UK, otherwise I really don't use my phone too much to do things. Well, in the evenings now I search Pinterest for new crafts :D

I've heard of Telegram, I've never heard of Signal. I also have never used whatsup but I know a lot of people who have. To be honest I just use discord. Stopped using skype right around the time discord became popular though I was using skype for quite some time.

Telegram, based on what i have seen, it's the app that don't know literally anything about you except your phone number lol
