WhatsApp Uses Status Stories to Combat Privacy Concerns

How to import your WhatsApp chat history to Telegram

The messaging app had then postponed its deadline to implement this policy from February 8 to May 15, 2021 following backlash from users.

While the messaging platform has issued multiple clarifications, Mark Zuckerberg went on to defend WhatsApp's privacy policy and reiterated that the update does not change the privacy of anyone's messages shared on the platform.

However, according to a LocalCircles survey, Privacy Policy changes promoted 5 percent of Indians to delete WhatsApp and have downloaded alternate apps such as Signal and Telegram to use actively.

People today have become more conscious and aware of how their data is being used.

If you're making the switch from WhatsApp to Telegram, the company has just announced that you'll be able to do so-although it isn't the one-click-solution that many were hoping for.

There has been an uproar in the digital world and everyone is looking for better options - Telegram and Signal to be safe when it comes to data privacy. Share with us your thoughts in the comment section. Of course, Telegram isn't the only alternative to the popular messaging app; Signal had an outage of two days due to the sudden influx of users jumping over from WhatsApp.

In other words, the unencrypted message only exists on your phone and on the phones of the people you sent it to.

Deeply concerned by developments in Myanmar, says India
Suu Kyi has been stripped of various honors and lost much of her worldwide support due to her handling of the Rohingya crisis. The NLD swept the polls and was expecting to renew the 75-year-old Suu Kyi's lease on power with a new five-year term.

Whatsapp private group chat links appeared in Google Search and giving the room for anyone to join the group, check participants and their phone numbers.

The Telegram desktop client does have the ability to export all of your chats either as human-readable HTML or in JSON format.

There are no anomalies as the app doesn't have a focus on incentivization so no option of business accounts or related models. "Our first update reaffirms that WhatsApp cannot see your personal messages, and neither can Facebook, because they are protected by end-to-end encryption", it added. Telegram uses MTProto protocol to encrypt them. Secret chats, groups and call history can be erased for all sides at any time. In simple terms, group chats are not safe. The end-to-end encrypted messaging app saw enormous downloads across both iOS and Android platforms.

Based on the above facts, Signal clearly stands out.

Note that Telegram does not automatically map the other user's contact number. This information is enough to figure out who is associated with whom across the globe.

It is possible to disable cloud backups and opt to manually back up your WhatsApp data.
