For work I have to use WhatsApp. I agree with EFFs concerns about WhatsApp and personal data (harvesting it and shoveling it into Facebook), and perhaps even its security.
I thought it would be possible to run WhatsApp on my PC in a sandboxed environment. I created a bootable USB with Remix OS because getting WhatsApp to work anonymously on that seems fairly easy. But Remix was so slow I can’t consider that viable.
I am looking for a lightweight solution. (I am running Lubuntu.) But if there is none, then I can figure out how to work with a more powerful machine. What do you suggest?
