With the new conditions of using the WhatsApp application, a new round of conflicts over the realization of Telegram – WhatsApp and Signal – WhatsApp has arrived. It is not uncommon for popular brands to mention their rivals on their social networks in a negative context, the whole debate is mostly funny, and the latest debate between Telegram, WhatsApp, and Signal shows that there is a lot of ”Bad Blood” between companies.
It all started when Telegram shared a photo on its official Twitter account showing the history of the Recycle Bin icon, with the last trash can representing 2021 with the WhatsApp logo, while the Facebook icon was found in it.
After a few hours, WhatsApp responded with a meme comment on that post. They said that Telegram hides that their application does not include end-to-end encryption. In case you did not know, Telegram does not use this type of protection on standard calls, and if you want to turn on end-to-end encryption, you must enable the Secret Chats option.
Telegram responded to these claims by pointing out that “users know how things work” and that they have access to the source code of their application to show it. They also shared the photo, claiming that Google, Apple, and WhatsApp can access the content of WhatsApp users’ messages.
Their post was followed by Signal, which paraphrased the WhatsApp post, but they noticed that it was “a great day to pretend privacy.”
While it is fun to see these platforms argue with each other on social media, it is very important to choose the right messaging app.
