WhatsApp ban at the DFB: Messenger is finally thrown out

The German Football Association forbids WhatsApp. Association employees will soon be prohibited from using the messenger on cell phones. According to DFB director Oliver Bierhoff, WhatsApp is "no longer responsible". Instead, alternatives should be used.

DFB: WhatsApp Messenger no longer allowed

In the future, employees of the German Football Association will have to do without the WhatsApp messenger . The association has announced that the messenger has no place at least on business smartphones. The restriction is justified with "legal and data protection concerns", as DFB director Oliver Bierhoff explains in the run-up to a World Cup qualifier.

WhatsApp is also not responsible for the DFB because "all contact details go to America". Instead, you would like to switch to alternative messengers, none of which is named. It could boil down to Signal, as Facebook Messenger is also out of the question as a further service. The national players themselves are not affected by the ban and can continue to choose the messenger freely (source: Sportbuzzer).

What alternatives are there to WhatsApp? The answer in the video :

According to the press spokesman of the DFB, then it is a "longer planned technical reorganization" . This also has nothing to do with the recent failure of WhatsApp and other Facebook services. For the New Year, WhatsApp will no longer be used for communication on company cell phones. The DFB is following the example of larger companies such as Deutsche Bank and Continental, which also do without the messenger.

WhatsApp ban for fighting leaks?

Perhaps the WhatsApp ban could also be related to an entirely different matter. In the past, internals of the DFB have come out to the public again and again. WhatsApp chats were often the focus here.
