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!
