Why should you use the Signal Messaging app

A few days back, WhatsApp users around the world, were greeted with a new disclaimer claiming a change in the privacy policy, according to which, Facebook could now access almost every aspect of personal information that you share on Whatsapp. This led to a total outrage in the community, with people comp[lainign about how the app is pressurizing you to accept the terms or lose access to the platform altogether.

In the midst of all the chaos, Elon Musk put out a simple tweet that said “Use Signal”, and the revolution began. For those of you who don’t know, Signal is an instant messaging app, that has only one basic working principle – end-to-end encryption.

Governments in most countries have made the switch to the Signal messaging app a few years ago, as it absolutely takes no data from you, which means, whatever you share, whatever you speak, is all visible only to you and the recipient. Signal has no access to what you communicate on their platform.

To confirm this fact, we opened the Signal app on the Apple App store, and under the app privacy section, what we saw is that the only piece of data that Signal can collect from you and your contact info. No media, no chat history, nothing at all.

Now, if you are one of those people who absolutely disagree with the new Whatsapp terms of privacy, here are some reasons to make the switch to the Signal messaging app.

Number 1. Complete end to end encryption

The USP of the Signal messaging app is the complete end-to-end encryption. This means that everything you do on the app is only under your purview. No one at the signal or any third agency will have any access to your activity on the app.
