If you’ve always had a smartphone, then you’ve probably noticed that there’s almost always a way to chat over text, email, Skype, or Facebook Messenger. And raises your hand if you’ve ever typed a message and accidentally deleted it before it was sent. Or maybe you’ve texted a friend and had your phone die mid-text, rendering all of your work lost. In all these cases, the safest way to chat is by voice calls, unless you like putting yourself at risk of embarrassing (or even dangerous) situations.

Chat apps are everywhere, and it might seem as if there’s nothing safer than chatting on WhatsApp. But how safe is WhatsApp? This new and updated app allows you to send videos and pictures, as well as your location, and even read and send text messages. Unfortunately, these features can be abused by people who want to bully or harass others. This app also lacks the encryption features found on other chat apps, so your data could be exposed by hackers.

Chat apps are a great way to stay in touch with friends and family. But which app is the safest? The answers will vary depending on the type of chat app you’re using. For example, instant messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Kik, and Viber allow you to send messages to your contacts but with no ability to see who’s talking back. However, some of these apps offer end-to-end encryption, so if those apps don’t sound too safe to you, you might want to look into more private apps like Signal, Telegram, or Wire.

You’re just starting a conversation, and the guy just asks for your number. What do you do? Maybe you find the courage to pull out your phone but hesitate when he asks if he can DM you. Maybe you won’t answer right away, but you still might doodle on your phone or check messages while you wait for the other person to respond. It’s okay if your first instinct is to answer, but don’t overthink it. The first step to chatting with people online is to make sure you are not on an anonymous server. Many websites allow you to create an account and pick a username, maybe even a picture. Once that’s done, pick a good password (strong passwords that include both upper case and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters).

Nowadays, chatting is an essential part of people’s lives. It enables them to share experiences, hold conversations, and make new friends. However, chatting can be risky. People might share their personal information, such as their mobile numbers, bank account details, and passwords. In addition, chatting on public computers might pose security and privacy risks, as people might have access to the computers.
