Messaging app Signal’s founder Moxie Marlinspike will step down and WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton will become the interim CEO.

Acton founded Signal’s rival messaging app WhatsApp in 2009, the company was bought by Meta Platforms, then Facebook in 2014.

He left WhatsApp in 2017 due to differences around the use of customer data and targeted advertising.

Signal, an end-to-end encrypted messaging platform, has been endorsed by people including Twitter Inc co-founder Jack Dorsey, and whistleblower and privacy advocate Edward Snowden.
