Comparison Between Signal vs WhatsApp vs Telegram Data Policy
WhatsApp’s new policy update has raised concerns among netizens with most users saying that they would now prefer a different chatting app other than WhatsApp.
The Facebook-owned messenger app said that as part of the policy update, it will share user data with other Facebook companies. The message elaborates for users the ways WhatsApp handles data and how it partners with Facebook to allow integrations across multiple apps.
The message is not favourable for WhatsApp users with a host of them threatening to leave the app and join its rivals live Telegram and Signal.
Signal that has recently been endorsed by Elon Musk tweeted that a lot of people have asked them how to move their group chats from other apps to Signal. The app’s bio on Twitter reads, “Say ‘hello’ to privacy”.
“A lot of people have been asking how to move their group chats from other apps to Signal, and Signal group links are a great way to get started. Drop a group link into your former chat app of choice like you’re dropping the mic on the way out,” it said.
The app also said that verification codes are currently delayed across several providers because “so many new people are trying to join Signal right now”.
WhatsApp users could have switch to other social media messenger and looking for alternatives but the privacy concerns have not stopped netizens from rolling out the choicest of memes.
