WhatsApp’s Privacy Policy Impact: Signal and Telegram Flood of New Users

Due to WhatsApp’s new privacy policy, Elon Musk’s tweet advised his fans to use the privacy-focused app Signal. After this, many veterans asked people to leave WhatsApp and use Signal. Due to this, there is a big jump in the number of people downloading the Signal app. If you are using Signal or Telegram, you will also see that dozens of your contacts are slowly signing up to these messaging apps.

Please tell Signal on Saturday at 5:26 am Tweet The app has been ranked first in the list of top free apps on the Apple App Store in India, Austria, France, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong and Switzerland.

The increase in new sign-ups for signals was apparently so large that users on some networks were getting delayed in getting verification codes. Musk had written ‘Use Signal’ on Thursday, suggesting people to use the Signal app. This small advice from the world’s richest man led to a spate of new sign-ups on the signal and servers were overloaded.

The WhatsApp rival himself confirmed this on Twitter. The developer wrote that there is a delay in sending verification codes to network providers due to the sudden surge in sign-ups.

This is the golden chance for the Signal app, where the app can expand its userbase, as WhatsApp is currently facing criticism due to its new privacy policy. Please tell that WhatsApp has changed its policies and these changes are not safe for the user’s personal data. As per the policy, data sharing with Facebook will now become mandatory, but WhatsApp has now clarified that the privacy policies for users are unchanged. Changes to the new privacy policy are for Business Accounts only.

In addition to Musk, Edward Snowden also recommended Signal. A user asked why they should trust the signal. In response to which he wrote “Here’s a reason: I use it every day and I’m not dead yet.”

Signal is an open-source messaging app, which focuses on privacy and is used by many large institutions worldwide, including journalists, security experts.
