Mark Zuckerberg: WhatsApp is “far more private and secure” than iMessage

WhatsApp is “far more private and secure” than Apple’s iMessage platform, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a new Instagram post.

U fast sharing a meta billboard in New York promoting WhatsApp over SMS or iMessage, Zuckerberg said WhatsApp is far better for privacy-conscious users thanks to its end-to-end encryption, the ability to set messages to disappear after a certain period of time and cross-platform availability.

WhatsApp is far more private and secure than iMessage, with end-to-end encryption that works on both iPhone and Android, including group chats. With WhatsApp you can also set all new conversations to disappear at the press of a button. And last year we introduced end-to-end encrypted backups. Everything iMessage still doesn’t have.

Apple and Meta have had an ongoing rivalry for some time now, and the tension between the two tech giants has been on the rise lately. Meta accused Apple of harming small businesses and their advertising business by introducing measures that allow it iPhone users to opt-out of in-app and web tracking on other websites.

In a meeting with staff, Zuckerberg said that Meta’s competition is with Apple “very deep” and “philosophical”, pointing to the increasingly competitive AR/VR space that Apple is expected to officially enter with a headset early next year.
