He said that this problem affects Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, however, with WhatsApp, it is possible to disable this feature. Tommy Misch also added to the report that he tested TikTok, WeChat, iMessage, Telegram, and Signal and found that they do not use accelerometers to track user movements.
