Use Signal app not WhatsApp
Elon Musk, Why are the world’s richest men advising people to use Signal app? What is there in the Signal app that is not in WhatsApp?
Bahral Facebook acquired WhatsApp and then two founders of WhatsApp continued to take money due to a dispute with Facebook. Now WhatsApp is completely Facebook and the CEO of Facebook is Mark Zuckerberg. Mark Zuckerberg’s attitude towards privacy is clear.
A few years ago, I spoke to WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton. When did they tell us that WhatsApp had lost its identity. Losing identity means that the purpose with which WhatsApp was created is no longer saved.
However, American businessman Elon Musk has now become the world’s richest man. Elon Musk is the founder of electric car manufacturer Tesla and space firm Space X. He has overtaken Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and is now the richest person in the world.
Elon Musk tweeted and wrote ‘Use Signal App‘. He has appealed to the people in a way to use Signal. Signal is an instant messaging app, but this app is considered to be the most secure in the world. It is interesting that in the signal, WhatsApp itself has got the money of the founder, whose inclination is towards privacy.
Following this tweet by Elon Musk, people are increasingly creating accounts on the signal. Some tweets have been made from Signal. Signal’s tweet states that suddenly a lot of people are connecting with Signal, so there are problems with account activation, which the company is working to fix quickly.
Why Signal App is different from WhatsApp
You understand this with an example. The Signal app has a feature that after enabling, you and the person you are talking to will not be able to take screenshots. Not only this, this app also ensures that no other app can even take screenshots of your chat.
WhatsApp collects almost all types of personal data from your identity, usage data, purchase data, location, contacts, user contacts, user IDs, device IDs. But the signal does not collect any of these types of data.
The source code of the Signal app is in the public domain, ie a security expert can do its security testing. Overall, what is inside this app, where is the data going, how is it being used, all of this can be seen.
What are the privacy features of Signal App
Talking about the security feature, the security features and security patches are available in the Signal app more quickly. The Signal app already has a Disappearing Chat feature which has recently come on WhatsApp. But still this feature of Signal is more secure, private and safe.
Recently on the Apple App Store, Data Linked To you feature has come under App Privacy. By going here you can see what kind of data Signal collects. Here you will clearly find that this app only takes access to your phone number, because you create an account on it only from the phone number.
