WhatsApp has always been criticized for how it manages users' private data, mainly since it was acquired by Facebook, whose business is based precisely on data. Two former employees of the messaging app have now launched HalloApp, a social network that aims to offer a service that prioritizes genuine relationships and users control everything they share on the app.
A social network for real contacts and with more privacy
The app's developers don't seem to be concerned about the saturation of the social network segment. Mainly because their business model is based on a simple, secure, and private product where users can share what they want only with those they choose.
To register, you must provide a phone number and add contacts from the device's contact list. This prevents any third-party brand from interfering in the communication between friends, family, co-workers or acquaintances, or influencers and other digital social media lurkers. The following are the main features it offers:
- Regulated posts with different levels of privacy.
- End-to-end encrypted conversations.
- No one outside the conversations can read the content.
- Support for different content formats.
- You can invite any contact on your list to join.
- Sober and minimalist interface design.I
n short, a social network where you share what you want only with those you care about.
