A Quick Blurb
This is for the technologically deficient:
Every app you use asks for the same permissions that Facebook Messenger asks for. They ALL have access to the same information that you are suddenly so protective of when it comes to Facebook messenger. I don’t care for the app myself, but at least inform yourselves.
Take your phone number off your profile altogether or set privacy settings to “Only Me.”
It’s not that difficult folks. All the claims about what this individual app does are one thing, but you have 20-30 apps (minimum) elsewhere on your phone that do the same. Smarten up. And stop listening to fear mongering “news” outlets who profit exclusively from keeping people in a state of high alert.
