New trends for Signal App & Telegram as users shun whatsapp over new terms of service

Following WhatsApp’s latest update in their terms of service, Signal App and Telegram have seen a sudden increase in their subscriber count.

The controversial update to WhatsApp’s terms, asking users to allow their personal data to be shared with its owner Facebook, stirred a lot of debate about privacy concerns, causing some users to instantly delete the watsapp app.

Signal app’s popularity shot up further this week after it was endorsed by Elon Musk, who has one of the most-followed accounts on Twitter, and by Twitter’s own top boss Jack Dorsey.

Ironically, WhatsApp uses Signal’s end-to-end encryption protocol to secure users’ chats.

More than 200,000 users installed Signal app across the app stores of Apple and Google in the last few days, while Telegram picked up over 1.5 million downloads, according to data analytics firm Sensor Tower.
