WhatsApp is under the umbrella of Facebook, and if we remember, we will remember all the security flaws that the social network has had between 2018 and 2019. Now UN indicates that its workers are prohibited from using WhatsApp precisely because of the lack of security.
All this comes because of the hacking that Jeff Bezos has suffered in his WhatsApp app by Prince Saud, Mohammed bin Salman. In fact there are independent experts to the UN who have sufficient evidence to affirm said hacking and a previous one that took place in 2018.

All the evidence suggests that the mobile hacking of Jezz Bezos, founder of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post, came because of a video that contains malware and that through this, the prince heir of Saudi Arabia took control of the WhatsApp of Bezos.
For this reason and several more, according to the UN, its employees are prohibited from using this messenger app to communicate, since they do not consider it safe to use that app. As reported, this order is active since last June. That is, since the summer of 2019, UN employees do not use WhatsApp to communicate for being a system lacking security.
WhatsApp has defended itself claiming that the technology they use provides a secure service to more than 1.5 billion users every day, thanks to its end-to-end encryption. In fact, WhatsApp for Android has already exceeded 5,000 million downloads.
All messenger applications may have some vulnerability, but the important thing is to solve it in time, and according to the words of WhatsApp, they are very fast in that aspect.
In one way or another, UN members have not used WhatsApp since June 2019, we do not know if that rule will end up abandoning or continuing over time. Now we want to launch debate, which messaging app do you like best? What do you consider safer?
