Today as per new WhatsApp privacy terms & conditions, everyone is worried about data privacy and its security. People are looking some alternate solution of this problem. Elon musk introduces a new Signal messaging app as a new alternative solution and replacement of WhatsApp.
Signal is a free messaging application developed by Signal Messenger LLC and available on both android and iOS platforms. You can download this app from google play store in android phones. This app is developed in USA and is specially designed to send encrypted text messages, audio, images and video messages for individuals as well as groups. We can use this app with same WhatsApp number. You can also use this app for encrypted phone calls between one signal user to another.
This app is more secure compare to other app as all messages are end-to-end encrypted, means no one can read your message. Neither signal nor any other third party can read your message because when messages sends by a sender on server, stores in a code form and safely delivered to receiver.
