Pavel Durov said that the US government is forcing vulnerabilities to be injected into popular instant messengers like WhatsApp

Pavel Durov stated in his channelthat US developers have to covertly inject vulnerabilities into applications on orders from the US government.

This applies to all applications, including messengers. That is why, according to Durov, they cannot guarantee confidentiality, unlike Telegram.

Most other applications would not be able to guarantee their users’ privacy even if they wanted to. Since their engineers live in the US, they are forced to covertly implement backdoors into their applications by order of the US government. If an engineer discloses this publicly, he could go to jail for violating a ban order.

In most cases, agencies do not even need a court order to extract private information from instant messengers such as WhatsApp, and in other cases, court documents are shrouded in secrecy. Some supposedly secure apps have been funded by government agencies since their inception (eg Anom, Signal).

According to Durov, the National Security Agency (NSA) makes sure that international encryption standards are readable.

He also added that Telegram’s American competitors are unhappy with the growth rate of the messenger.
