بعد الجدل بشأن الخصوصية في “واتساب”.. أغنى رجل في العالم “إيلون ماسك” يقترح البديل الآمن

Al Marsad Newspaper – Tech News: Messaging Apps Telegram and Signal saw a sudden increase in demand for iBro on social media following WhatsApp’s updated terms of service following a surge in competition.

WhatsApp, which uses encryption technology signals, set new conditions on Wednesday requiring users to agree to collect Facebook and its user data, including phone number and location, to Facebook and its affiliates.

While some privacy activists have questioned Twitter about the movement to accept data collection or exit the service, and they suggested that users switch to applications such as Telegram and Signal.

The signal’s popularity skyrocketed on Thursday following a mention by US businessman and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, one of the most followed accounts on Twitter with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

He saw a big jump in new sign-ups, advising his followers to use a privacy-focused app, following concerns about WhatsApp’s new privacy policy.

According to data analytics company Sensor Tower, over 100,000 users have installed the signal via the App Store at Google and Apple in the past two days, while Telegram has received around 2.2 million downloads.

Signal posted a tweet stating that it has become the best free app on the App Store in India, Austria, France, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong and Switzerland.
