WhatsApp restricts message-sharing to fight fake news

Jan 21, 2019 6:52AM PST

WhatsApp is limiting all its members to forwarding any single message up to five times in an effort to tackle the spread of false information on the platform as BBC reported here: https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-46945642
What do you think about this? Pretty ridiculous?

Telegram is good for its channels and groups, but no more.
I heard that desktop version has lots of security bugs.

It is time to stop it. All the same, we will use something "unsafe" and "non-confidential"

There are too many internet users who faced data leaking and hacks, therefore we need to fight against non privacy.
