What is the best alternative of WhatsApp
If you are okay to forego Video calling, then Telegram.
If you are okay to forego groups with 150+ members, then Signal..

Honestly, Signal's encryption is world class, open source and also in use by other messaging apps as well. WhatsApp also uses signal's end-to-end encryption for chats...

WhatsApp says European users will not be forced to agree to share personal information with Facebook.

However, WhatsApp’s Irish arm, said on Thursday that although users in Europe are in the process of being issued new terms of services to which they must agree, the revised agreement did not include data sharing.
