Good time to take a look at Signal if you haven’t yet. It’s basically What’sApp with a few added features, but Open Source, developed by a non-profit, and with stellar security.
There are also other alternatives (Matrix, XMPP etc…) but they are behind in terms of UX and accessibility for non tech-savyy users.
Most likely the privacy-conscious users will start leaving WhatsApp, while those who don’t care just resort to saying “I have nothing to hide”.
