If this Chaos was not enough, Edward Snowden, The famous whistle blower claimed against using the Allo app, Citing that it intrudes upon your privacy and makes all the information readily availble to the CIA.

Although the issue has been called ‘Vague’ and ‘Intentional Attack’ by many, It still made a minor impact on Apple’s reputation, but reports of slowing iPhone 7 sales were nowhere to be seen.
