If you have an Android, you are probably aware of the forced migration to messenger. I couldn't install it myself until I bought a Google play card because it requires some kind of payment/account verification despite it being free. upon installing. it requires every permission known to Google play. my local news says there is no privacy on the app. plus on Facebook, has conservative political pages up in arms. some report your giving them permission to spy on you, look at your photos on the device, make phone calls, send text messages, the list goes on. all from your phone without your consent.
is all this really true?
