Signal Trolls Mark Zuckerberg- Found Using "Signal" Rival app of Whatsapp

Cyber researcher Dave Walker posted a Twitter-based screenshot claiming that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, was a signals user, a competing tool for the WhatsApp messaging application.

CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg was one of 533 million Facebook users from 106 different countries who officially received hackers' personal data on April 3rd. Among the stolen personal data that was made public on the Saturday forum were Zuckerberg's phone number, place, name, date of birth, matrimonial details, and Facebook username. Cyber researcher Dave Walker reported that the personal information was also leaked with the information from the Facebook co-founders, Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz. "Of the #FacebookLeak of the 533M people who are leaching, Walker tweeted on April 4–ironically Mark Zuckerberg is also unfortunately included in the leak."

In another tweet, the Twitter security expert alleged Zuckerberg was a Signal application user.

“In another turn of events, Mark Zuckerberg also respects his own privacy, by using a chat app that has end-to-end encryption and isn’t owned by @facebook,” Dave Walker wrote on Twitter.

Walker shared a screenshot of the reportedly leaked telephone number of Zuckerberg which stated: "Mark Zuckerberg is on the signals," "this is the Facebook Leak Number."

The official Signal app Twitter account shot Zuckerberg on the Twitter microblogging platform as part of this new growth.

Signal said: "With the May 15th WhatsApp terms of approval of the deadline for the acceptance of the service quickly approaching, Mark leads by example."

This referred to the "disagreeable" modification of WhatsApp's (Zuckerberg-owned) Privacy Policy earlier this year. In the beginning, the date for the implementation of the WhatsApp policies was chosen for 8 February but the dating has been delayed and postponed until 15 May, according to a BGR article.

What is Signal?

The Signal is a non-profit organization-based Signal Foundation's instant messaging software. In 2014, the application was unveiled as private messaging. Even "Say Hi to privacy" is the Signal tagline. Signal is also available as end-to-end encryption for all devices such as Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The former WhatsApp co-founder Brien Acton, who had divided up ways with WhatsApp in 2017, founded Signal Foundation, the enterprise that managed Signal Private Messenger. Signal does not support chats on Google Drives or iCloud, although it does have almost all similar functionality for WhatsApp. Moreover, groups cannot automatically incorporate persons unless people approve of them.

Tesla's leader Elon Musk tweeted on 7 January: "Use the message." Single tweet helps Musk Signal sets the Fire app store Internet and download button.
