Facebook recently came up with one of the biggest data leaks in history. The data of 533 million users in the social media application fell into the hands of hackers and the stolen data went up for sale on the internet. According to the information revealed, among the victims of the leak is Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of the company.
After the famous billionaire’s information leaked, an interesting detail drew attention. Facebook‘s CEO Zuckerberg uses Signal as his messaging app.
The CEO‘s leaked information includes various personal information such as his address, phone number, and date of birth. This information, which is very critical, opens the way for other details. For example, an analyst who accessed and recorded Zuckerberg‘s phone number discovered an interesting detail. Mark Zuckerberg uses Signal, the messaging app that stands out for being particularly secure.
It is quite surprising that Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, is using this app. Because Facebook owns the world’s most popular messaging apps, WhatsApp and Messenger.

Facebook has not been off the agenda recently, especially due to WhatsApp. The popular messaging application managed to disturb the users with the new contract it imposed. For this reason, after the latest information, criticism against the company will probably increase. What kind of explanation will come from the social media giant on the subject is a matter of curiosity.
Making fun of the incident on Twitter, Signal said, “On May 15, a WhatsApp user agreement becomes mandatory. Mark took the first step to set an example for people. ” made the explanation.
Signal stands out in one aspect in particular. Developed by a non-profit foundation, the application promises its users a more secure experience thanks to end-to-end encryption. This situation causes users to leave Messenger with WhatsApp, which is already being discussed due to the new contract, and turn to Signal. The messaging application is experiencing its golden days, especially after the WhatsApp user agreement was on the agenda in 2021 and was recommended by Elon Musk.
