    If you have to side-load it or manually install it, where is the audit trail? See comments here:

    Consider this:
    One-Post Spam-bots with new forum accounts are promoting the use of modified whatsapp apps.
    One-Post Spam bots with new forum accounts are promoting claims "it's totally safe, bro. Just install it like me, a bot."
    It costs time and money to advertise.
    If you are not paying for the product, then maybe you and all your data is the product they are selling.
    If they are selling your data, the best case is sales to advertisers, such as what FaceBook does with their services. (Targeted advertising by data-mining user data.)
    The worst case is sales to organized crime, or governments which can sometimes be the same thing.

    Good luck.
