WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram outside the Swiss Army! They only use Threema

WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram are the best known and most used messaging apps on the Internet and the ones that have brought more security and privacy issues.

A new case now seems to take shape, as they are excluded from the Swiss Army. Only one app can be used and it is created in the country. We are talking about Threema, a paid app that has some unique conditions to be chosen.

User privacy issues have been a central theme in messaging services such as WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram. Arguments and accusations always point to the possibility of these being read and thus the data being accessed either by the services or by third parties.

The Swiss Army is now raising some more questions, by banning the use of these services among all its officers. This military force is using an argument that points to the possibility of this data getting out of its control and passing to the US.

Swiss army wants more privacy

The transfer of this information can be done in a simple way and under some legal agreements. Under the Cloud Act, it is possible for US judges to order access to data held by US operators, even if these are located on servers outside the United States.

As an alternative to WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram, the highest ranks of this army want it to be used a Swiss-based service. We’re talking about Threema. This is exempt from any obligation of the Cloud Act and fully respects the data regulations imposed by the European Union.

Threema is allowed choice in other areas

Communications at Threema are end-to-end encrypted and users do not need to link their identification to a mobile phone number or email. This service already claims 10 million users, including 2 million in its messaging service for commercial use. In the case of the Swiss Army, the government will pay for the service.

Interestingly, and in other areas of Swiss government entities, Threema had already been adopted. Also here it was used as an alternative to WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram.
