So lets move back to the same question. Is it safe to use?

I’ve been using it since it got released , developers haven’t done anything bad so far and only kept updating the app , so in the 6 or more months I’ve been using it I’ve nothing but good things to say about it. But as I checked their website there is not Privacy Policy or Terms of Service page. I cannot guarantee about the privacy of your account but I will always suggest you to use burner account.

Burner account means like create a new account and sign in using that.
