Following WhatsApp’s announcement to share phone app data with Facebook, many users are turning to a similar app signal, while the British public is taking an interest in the Telegram app.
It should be noted that WhatsApp had announced that after February 8, it will share the data of its nearly two billion users with Facebook.
But that is not the end of the matter. Facebook has leaked its users’ data many times and there has been a lot of fuss over it.
Now the latest news is that an app like ‘Signal’ has come first on the App Store and WhatsApp is not known far and wide because there is a similar app ‘Telegram’ on the second number and an app like Parlor.
Also included in this list. On the other hand, people are abandoning WhatsApp because of its strict but vague policies. Various rumors have added fuel to the fire.
On the other hand, the ‘Accept WhatsApp or Leave App’ policy has reduced its popularity on Google Play Store and Apple App Store in the next few days.
As of this writing, Signal is the first app to be downloaded from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Lebanon and other countries, while it is also the third most downloaded app in India, Brazil and Singapore.
The signal also has strict end-to-end encrypted standards. Signal encryption software is open source and has fewer bugs and errors than others.
On the other hand, it does not use metadata like the leading apps.
According to analysts, as soon as the world’s richest man Elon Musk announced the use of the signal, the name of the signal became known all over the world, its downloads increased and its stock also increased rapidly.
But Telegram is not far behind in this speed. 1.5 million users in Europe and UK are downloading WhatsApp every day.
It has folder options, cloud storage and a desktop app that makes it suitable for homework, conferences and more. Telegram downloads rose 11% in January.
Unlike developing countries, people in developed countries are very sensitive about the security and privacy of their data and that is why users there are abandoning the WhatsApp.
