After making changes to WhatsApp’s privacy policy, Elon Musk posted a “Use Signal” on Twitter on Thursday, which will lead to more data sharing with parent company Facebook. Earlier today, Musk also released a “domino effect” meme, suggesting that the establishment of Facebook was the cause of the chaos and violence in the US Capitol in Washington. It is perhaps not surprising that Musk has a history of public disagreements with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who is often broadcast on Twitter.

Signal is a well-known privacy-focused messaging application that has been widely used by security experts, privacy researchers, academics and journalists all over the world. The Signal protocol also supports WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption, although one major difference is that Signal is open source, while WhatsApp is not.

WhatsApp’s new privacy policy has attracted the attention of many people because the app has long touted that it will not view user data in any way and that WhatsApp is safe and private. Earlier, WhatsApp also complained that Apple’s App Store privacy label is anti-competitive because the same label does not apply to Apple’s own apps.

WhatsApp’s updated privacy policy and terms of service have new sections, including transaction and payment data and location information. The most significant change in the updated privacy policy and terms of service is the way WhatsApp shares information with Facebook and its subsidiaries.

As mentioned above, this is not Musk’s only choice for Facebook. Earlier, he also posted a tweet linking the creation of Facebook to the domino effect, which led to violence and chaos in Washington.

The history of Musk’s disagreement with Zuckerberg on Twitter goes back many years. For example, the two companies are very different in terms of artificial intelligence, and Musk believes that artificial intelligence must be carefully monitored. When Zuckerberg made fearful remarks against artificial intelligence, Musk said on Twitter that the Facebook CEO had limited understanding of this issue.
