Bulgaria: WhatsApp Coming to Its End?

According to Sensor tower WhatsApp application saw a 43% drop in downloads compared to last year, while over the same period its direct rivals such as Signal or Telegram jumped to 1,200% (yes 1.200%).

Much of that bump may be due to the Facebook scandals, the final formalization of the integration between the capital “F” and WhatsApp.

Of course something to do has the visibility, which Apple has given to the privacy concerns posed by these types of companies and applications that do not have the slightest modesty in monitoring of each of the movements that we make, while using our phones.

The Cupertino company has launched in its latest version of iOS an interesting little tracking system that helps the app users to allow, block and track on the data that installed apps (like WhatsApp) collect on their own, something that until now had little visibility.

The privacy controversy that Apple has fueled with the launch of its anti-tracking tools has created a crisis on WhatsApp. Instant messaging app is reaping its worst numbers in recent years, which could be a big blow to the hegemony of this beloved and hated app.
