Edward Snowden on Allo: It’s “Google Surveillance”. “Don’t use Allo”

Google has finally released Allo, but privacy advocates, including NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, have warned about the threat it poses to users’ privacy and safety. Allo, a personal messaging and assistance app which lacks previously promised security safeguards, amounts to “Google Surveillance”, so “Don’t use Allo,” Snowden tweeted in a series of tweets.
