What are the new problems with continuing to use WhatsApp?

You have to agree to give your data away so that Facebook can monetize it better.

Data that you will agree to be given to Facebook and its other subsidiaries includes “your account registration information (such as your phone number), transaction data, service-related information, information on how you interact with others (including businesses) when using our Services, mobile device information, your IP address, and may include other information identified in the Privacy Policy section entitled ‘Information We Collect’ or obtained upon notice to you or based on your consent.”


What are the existing problems with using WhatsApp for Internal Communication?

Here are 10 reasons why it is dangerous and negligent


Why would you want to use a standalone chat-only-App when you can have an Employee App that increases productivity, safety, and quality at the same time?

The Beekeeper employee app is an easy-to-use, mobile internal communication platform that:

  • Gives frontline employees instant access to information and resources they need to do their jobs effectively
  • Offers inline translations, so communications reach every employee in their preferred language
  • Engages employees at all levels, increasing overall employee satisfaction and retention
  • Boosts efficiency and productivity by giving employees easy access to the tools they use every day in one centralized location
  • Reduces the need for meetings. Instead use video, chats, direct messages, group chats, or file sharing


“Communication is a fundamental part of building a great company culture. Nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to Beekeeper. Every client I’ve worked with to install it, declares they are now a better business because of it.” - Tim Watson, Beekeeper Partner
