Messengers were originally invented as affordable means for quick and productive communication between people or a group of interlocutors, the exchange of information and photo / video. However, application developers came to a completely different point. First of all, big doubts arise about the privacy of popular communication services, as their owners assure, everything is very reliable. At the same time, hackers with enviable regularity detect the next vulnerabilities, gaining access to user data and their correspondence. The outrage of many in applications is also outrageous. But most of all, the statement made by WhatsApp management about the innovation that affects everyone was the most upsetting. The number of forwarded messages will now limit even more. Previously, the value was 20 individual and / or group chats, but now it has dropped to 5. According to the official version, WhatsApp made such an unpopular decision to facilitate the fight against the dissemination of untrue data. Fake news these days is spreading like an avalanche. Very quickly, they are also surrounded by fictional details and details. WhatsApp believes that fakes are a direct threat to people’s safety. The novelty was tested initially in India. It was in this country that such news in two years led to the deaths of at least 40 innocent people. Now users will be limited in other countries.
