Amid widespread concern regarding WhatsApp’s new privacy policy, 15-year-old Pakistani app developer Nabeel Haider has a solution: an alternative instant messaging app that he claims works even better. 

Haider hails from Karachi and has a keen interest in app development.

Federal Minister for Information Technology and Telecommunication Syed Amin-ul-Haque, who met and praised the teenager for his dedication, has offered him a chance to refine the app under expert supervision.

“I met with 15 y/o Nabeel Haider, who developed ‘FF Family’ – an advanced version of WhatsApp.”

“I loved his dedication and have offered an internship via MoIT at the NIC in Karachi, where his app will be floated & groomed,” the minister wrote on Twitter.

“Our youth and technology is the future,” he added.
