Beware of Dangerous Apps

There are Apps which, pretend to make life easy for us. The so-called "smart phones" are usually the ones for which these are developed. Phones are not "smart". They are lifless, material objects with no brain (only programs) with capacity to think. Programs do not think, even if they have "artificial intelligence" which, is not intelligence but, a structured pre-progranmmed response to stimuli which, in turn are only as good as the author's idea should be to an external stimulus.

Since, phones are not smart, and never can be, people need to be smart. 

A website called, "Gadgets Now" has published a caution against an App named, "Kimbho". It says that the App which, is pitched as an alternative to WhatsApp, has security issues and that it was taken out within hours of its launch.

Here's the link to the "Gadegets Now" web page with the caution.
