The latest #WhatsApp news is part of a general trend where companies erode their own privacy policies over time. It is rare that you will ever see a privacy policy update that adds clauses in its users' favour.

These companies need more data to thrive and grow. It's how they work, it's their DNA.

I believe that only communication platforms with no central ownership can be trusted. That's why I'm working hard on @snikket_im. I already migrated my family to it, and it's going great!

Tails natively ships with a client. Currently Pidgin.
For security reason Tails is going to replace it.

New XMPP client that Tails is likely to natively install will be either @dino or @gajim

Some research about them and Tails requirements you can read here:
