In the past few days, social media has been hit hard as Facebook-owned app WhatsApp has been accused to hack privacy. The people from all over the world are counter blasting WhatsApp for its’ sudden betray over privacy setting. Thus, in order to protect data, people are shifting to Signal or Telegram.
Reason to stop using WhatsApp:
Telegram or Signal: choose the safer one
Bothe Telegram and Signal have been stood out to be trustable alternatives of WhatsApp. But if you have to choose between these two, play your cards correctly so as to avoid being betrayed again. Although these two apps are far better than WhatsApp in most of the ways, if it comes to who tops among these two, it would probably be Signal. Just like WhatsApp, Signal has also the Sticker and emoji option. Telegram is somehow struggling even now about its’ secure and privacy of messages. One of the main concerns is that Telegram’s live location option has recently got fired for infringement over privacy. The signal is end-to-end encrypted and unlike telegram, it shares fewer data and collects messages on your mobile, not in the cloud. Although the signal uses your phone number as your identity which questions its’ privacy. But thankfully, the company has created the pin code option so as to convince everyone about the app’s safety and security. Unlike Facebook who owns WhatsApp and Instagram in the aim of sharing an advertisement, Signal has no motive to share user’s personal information or any data anywhere. Signal also comprises of the ‘Disappearing Message’ option which is exactly like WhatsApp. This is what Telegram doesn’t have actually and it needs to be more modified in order to reach the exact level of Signal.
