Cyber ​​security researcher Dave Walker

has revealed

that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is among the half a billion users whose personal information was leaked to the network in 2019 - and has been roaming freely on the network in recent days.

"The irony is that Mark Zuckerberg was unfortunately also included in the leak," Walker tweeted.

In addition, the security researcher found that Zuckerberg's phone number was linked to the Signal account - an encrypted instant messaging app that recently rose to prominence due to a protest against competitor WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook.

And that's not all, in response to Walker's discovery, Signal celebrated the revelation and tweeted "As WhatsApp's terms and conditions on May 15 are fast approaching, Mark Zuckerberg is setting an example."

As you may recall, WhatsApp's announcement of a change in the company's privacy policy in early January and the sharing of information with Facebook provoked a sharp reaction from users all over the world, which led to a mass influx of competing apps - such as Signal and Telegram.

Since then, the social network has postponed the date of approval of the terms to May 15.
