Is WhatsApp safe?

Now that Facebook has purchased WhatsApp everybody is wondering if WhatsApp is safe for texting.

Well, the fact is, WhatsApp has never really been a secure texting app and now that Facebook is the owner your texts will certainly be read and used by Facebook, the NSA and who knows who else.

Facebook recently made some changes to it’s Android mobile app requesting access to all your text messages. If you want to use their app you have to accept the permission update. I’m sure the same will be true for WhatsApp soon.
