    Signal's downloads skyrocketed 4,200% after Whatsapp to share info with F.B.

    $#@! Zuck!

    Signal's downloads skyrocketed 4,200% after WhatsApp announced it would force users to share personal data with Facebook

    WhatsApp's rivals got a massive boost after the messaging app announced on Wednesday that it would make users share some personal data with its parent company, Facebook.

    WhatsApp told users they would have to agree to let Facebook and its subsidiaries collect WhatsApp data including phone numbers and locations before February 8 or lose access to the app. WhatsApp has since clarified that this affects users only outside the European Union and the UK and said that the change "does not affect the privacy of your messages with friends or family in any way."

    Data from app-analytics firm Sensor Tower shows Signal, a rival encrypted messaging service, saw an enormous surge in user numbers following WhatsApp's announcement.

    "From January 6 to January 10, Signal saw approximately 7.5 million installs globally from across the App Store and Google Play," a Sensor Tower representative told Insider.

    And will Apple and Google now ban Signal?
