Kik or WhatsApp?

    I've often communicated with people on here via only the messaging system because I've wanted to stay anonymous. Also, don't want people around me who look at my phone a lot accidentally seeing my working together with others regarding NOFap (personal preference, please don't judge).

    But lately, I realize most people use either one of these two apps which makes me wonder if I need to get on it. A lot of people here don't want to just use the messaging system. So my question is...what is the pros/cons of both and which do you prefer? I really would like to stay anonymous and I know WhatsApp you have to give out your personal cell number...not too terribly in love with that idea. Also, I've heard WhatsApp is only free for a year then you have to pay .99 cents or something annually? But I've also heard Kik can be triggerous. Also, not sure which of the two is better for staying more anonymous on your phone if others around you pick it up....Also, can you use both on your computer if you don't want to use your phone?

    Or also, maybe there is a 3rd option out there?

    Thanks for your help!

    Well those are both pretty popular. But I think kik is safer (since theres no phone numbers involved) though every time you log off kik your messages will be erased and after an amount of messages sent and received, it'll automatically start deleting your messages, so theres no option (so far as far as i know of) to save history. so if you like to save history you'd have to screenshot your messages lol.

    on whatsapp you can set your online status to invisible which is cool, saves history (if im correct), has a lot of options and customizations. kik has some sex bots here and there that message you out of nowhere, their avatars/profile pictures can be of triggering material, but you can usually tell its a bot.


    theres also another option but then i think others would have to download it because its not very popular. it's called "wickr" its extremely private you only need a username and a password, no emails or phone numbers to create an account. but you cant reset your password if you forget it though.
    im not sure if theres an option for your chat history to be saved but there are timers to self destruct your messages at a certain time..lol.
    i'd say this is the ultimate safest app~

    whats telegram like?
     
  10. It's like KIK because you don't need to let people know your number. I like it more because I associate KIK with porn sharing. Telegram also has a nicer design.

    Messaging on the forum is a bit cumbersome, no notification system, clunky as all forums tend to be. But it is 'safe', on other platforms you may have bad surprises. I guess we all have to weigh pros and cons of all options. I see discord becoming a popular option btw.
