Facebook recently came up with one of the biggest data leaks in history. The data of 533 million users on the social media app fell into the hands of hackers, and the stolen data went on sale online. Among the victims of the leak is the company’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, according to the revelations.
After the leak of the famous billionaire’s information, an interesting detail stood out. Zuckerberg, CEO of social media giant Facebook, uses Signal as his messaging app.
Mark Zuckerberg prefers Signal
Leaked information about the CEO includes a variety of personal information, including his address, phone number and date of birth. This information, which is very critical, paves the way for other details. For example, an analyst who accessed and recorded Zuckerberg’s phone number discovered an interesting detail. Mark Zuckerberg uses Signal, the messaging app that stands out for being particularly secure.
It’s quite surprising that Zuckerberg, who is already ceo of Facebook, is using this app. Because Facebook owns WhatsApp and Messenger, the most popular messaging apps in the world. “I wonder if Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t trust his own apps?”
Facebook has been on the agenda lately, especially because of WhatsApp. The popular messaging app managed to annoy users with its new contract, which it mandated. Therefore, following the latest information, criticism of the company is expected to increase. It’s a question of what kind of explanation will come from the social media giant.
Mocking the incident on Twitter, Signal said, “On May 15, the WhatsApp user agreement becomes mandatory. Mark took the first step to set an example for people,” he said.
Why is Signal preferred?
Signal, whose name we have heard a lot recently, stands out especially in one issue. Developed by a nonprofit foundation, the app promises its users a more secure experience thanks to end-to-end encryption. This causes users to drop WhatsApp and Messenger, which is already being discussed due to the new contract, and turn to Signal. The messaging app is in its golden days, especially after the WhatsApp user agreement was on the agenda in 2021 and recommended by Elon Musk. Signal ranks second in the google play store in the messaging apps category.
