Mark Zuckerberg Gets Trolled By ‘Signal’ For Using Their App After His Data Gets Leaked Online

| Published on April 10, 2021

Ever since Whatsapp received backlash for its updated privacy policy earlier this year, many people have moved to other messaging apps like Telegram and Signal. Not just laymen, many celebrities and industrialists have also joined in on boycotting Whatsapp and choosing other apps.

In fact, Signal’s popularity boosted by Elon Musk’s simple tweet, ‘Use Singal’. The app has since been one of the top apps on the charts.

To much surprise, it has recently been brought to light that the entrepreneur, founder, and CEO of Facebook and owner of Whatsapp, Mark Zuckerberg is on Signal himself.

How did people find out that the entrepreneur was a fan? It happened by accident of course.

Mark Zuckerberg was among the 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries whose personal information was reportedly leaked by hackers on April 3. Among the stolen personal data published on a hacker forum on Saturday were Zuckerberg’s phone number, location, name, date of birth, marriage information, and Facebook user ID.

Cyber researcher Dave Walker confirmed that Facebook co-founders Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz’s personal details were also leaked with the data. On April 4, Walker tweeted, “Regarding the #FacebookLeak, of the 533M people in the leak – the irony is that Mark Zuckerberg is regrettably included in the leak as well.”

Dave went on to inform that the entrepreneur was in fact on Signal himself. Signal was quick to respond on the matter and decided to taunt their rival in a healthy way.

The internet also jumped in on all the leg-pulling and reverted to the news in the most hilarious way possible. Needless to say, it was shocking to know that Mark Zuckerberg would choose to be on a different messaging platform including its own. The privacy policy of Whatsapp will be in effect from 15 May 2021 and has been attracting a lot of negative attention on Zuckerberg and the app.
