Whatsapp’s co-founder has left the company long ago. In 2018, he has invested more than Rs 3.57 billion in the secure messaging app Singla. WhatsApp is the most used instant messaging app worldwide. According to statistics, there are 2 billion users of WhatsApp worldwide.
The signal App is an instant messaging app that is privacy-focused. It is also considered to be the most secure and private instant messaging app ever. In this app, the founder of WhatsApp has invested money by founder Brian Acton.
Signal app users are much less compared to WhatsApp. But now the company wants it to be used worldwide. According to a Wired report, the company is working hard to increase its userbase.
According to a report by Wired, now the Signal app’s reach is increasing, but till now it was only used by privacy-foxed people, activists and cyber-security experts.
In 2018, WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton has invested $ 50 million (about Rs 3.57 billion) in Signal App. Signal founder Moxie Marlinspike believes encrypted communication should be made easy for everyone.
The signal is a secure and private instant messaging app and the special thing is that it is open source. There is an end to end encryption for both text and voice messages. Your message can neither see the signal nor can it be read from the signal’s server.
Some data of WhatsApp is shared with Facebook, that is, Facebook also uses this data to make money. Not so with signals. The company claims that user data cannot be shared with anyone, even if it is a government agency.
