Co-founder of computer technology giant Apple Steve Wozniak announced on Sunday that he’s done with Facebook amid security concerns about personal information.

‘I am in the process of leaving Facebook. It’s brought me more negatives than positives,’ Wozniak posted on the social media site on Sunday before closing his account, according to USA Today.

‘Apple has more secure ways to share things about yourself. I can still deal with old school email and text messages.’

By Sunday evening, all traces of Wozniak’s profile had disappeared from the site.

Wozniak’s abrupt departure from Facebook comes just days after the company apologized for mishandling the data belonging to an estimated 87 million users on the social media platform.

Last month, computer expert turned whistleblower Christopher Wylie revealed that his former company, political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica, inappropriately acquired the Facebook information of millions of user in a massive data breach.

Wozniak leaving Facebook is the latest in a tit-for-tat snipping among Silicon Valley tech moguls.

In March, Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked during joint interview with Recode and MSNBC how he would manage a crisis like the one confronting founder and CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg.

‘I wouldn’t be in the situation,’ Cook replied.

Apple, Cook noted, says every app must be reviewed and meet the company’s privacy standards before it can become available on Apple devices.
