Which Messaging App Is Safe?

Published: 2021-02-18 in General


Earlier this year, WhatsApp caused a stir when it announced that users would soon have to share data with Facebook as part of a new privacy agreement.

Messaging apps like WhatsApp, iMessenger, and Signal use encryption which means data traveling across the platform is end-to-end encrypted and secure.  

Although the data inside the app is encrypted from the outside, the question is, can the company that owns the apps view your content? They say no.

The way we used to communicate and do business has changed.  The use of iMessager and these other great services have provided more opportunities for companies to be successful.  So perhaps this privacy risk is one we should take to make our life easier and business more profitable.  

  • RCC uses tools like anti-spam and antivirus software to help reduce the risk of attacks while using messaging apps inside the network. 
  • Does your company have an anti-virus setup or anti-spam?

RCC Business IT is different. Our approach is to meet with businesspeople who are happy with their current approach to technology. 

We show them how to look at things differently. For example, we look at 4 key areas:

  • Performance
  • Functionality
  • Risk
  • Cost
