Signal and Telegram record popularity records. May this trend continue
I’m not quite sure how much of WhatsApp’s merit is, and how much Elon Musk’s Twitter post encouraging people to use Signal – but I know something has changed. Our entry about the Signal secure messenger has been very popular in recent days, the safest messenger has topped the charts in app stores, and the icing on the cake are investors buying Signal shares. But, funny, completely unrelated to software developers, because this product never went public. Every day the list of contacts that are available within the messenger is growing – the same applies to Telegram, which yesterday celebrated crossing the magical limit of 500 million active users.
In the past 72 hours alone, over 25 million new users have joined Telegram
– we read in the sent message. Impressive numbers and a very good change – even if you can argue about whether and how secure Telegram is, it will still be a better choice than Messenger (which collects more information about users than all other messaging services combined) or WhatsApp.
WhatsApp developers have found that the changes taking effect on February 8, 2021 have touched users
Considering how many things Facebook can get away with and get away with, probably none of its creators even thought for a moment that WhatsApp could do such a trick. The user ebb was apparently painful and noticeable enough that a special help page was created where we read:
We can’t see your private messages or hear your conversations – Facebook doesn’t have that option either: Neither WhatsApp nor Facebook can read your messages or hear your calls with friends, family and colleagues on WhatsApp. Everything you share stays between you. This is because your private messages are protected with end-to-end encryption. We will never reduce this protection and clearly mark each chat to reassure users of our commitment. Learn more about security on WhatsApp by going to here.
It’s nice of them that they bothered to tell a little bit concerned users. Maybe someday they will also decide to speak out on the accusations that WhatsApp is giving Google full access to conversations and files shared in users’ private conversations.
