How curious that one of the most popular instant messenger applications and without a doubt one of the applications with the highest number of downloads on both Android and iOS, WhatsApp, not be the best app of its kind. Because as much as the opposite is said, other tools such as Telegram are much safer and have many more functions.
Despite this, Telegram is not installed on the same number of smartphones as the Facebook app. Now here near. As much as we insist and as much as you all recommend all your friends and family to go to Telegram, WhatsApp remains the messenger app with the largest number of users. Do you want to know how many?
In spite of everything … WhatsApp continues to reign
That the phone of the richest man in the world has been hacked because of a simple WhatsApp message should put us on alert, but it is not. Because as we read in the official blog of the app, WhatsApp has just reached two billion active users throughout the world.
End-to-end encryption is a necessity in modern life. We will not compromise the security of the platform because we do not want people to feel unprotected. For added protection, we work with the best security experts, employ industry-leading technology to stop possible abuses, and offer controls and channels to report problems, without sacrificing privacy.
The statement also takes the opportunity to state how safe the application is and that in addition, they work every day to increase the privacy of their users. Be that as it may, we cannot deny that WhatsApp has achieved a quite important milestone – deserved or not that is already another topic – since with more than 5,000,000,000 downloads only in the Play Store, maintain a base of 2,000,000,000 users Assets is not easy at all.
