Goodbye WhatsApp? "I use it every day and I'm not dead yet" / Former US Security Agency employee makes strong statement, get acquainted with the application he is expected to replace

Goodbye WhatsApp? "I use it every day and I'm not dead yet" /

'Use Signal' - was a Twitter post made by SpaceX and Tesla chief Elon Musk. Mask's post on January 7 caused a lot of reactions. After him, the same message was shared by Edward Snowden.

When asked why he recommended that application, the former US Security Agency employee responded by saying:

"I use it every day and I're not dead yet.

What is Signal?

For those who do not follow or have not seen Musk and Snowden posts, Signal is an encrypted messaging app. This means that the application uses a protocol that ensures that no one including Signal itself can access the content of the messages.

Since its release, it has held its first place in the Apple App Store as well as in the Google Play Store. Signal can be viewed as a rival to Whatsapp.

WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, has approximately 2 billion monthly active users worldwide, while Signal has about 14 million. It's hard to call these apps really competitive, as a messaging app is just as strong as its network. But while the WhatsApp network is under threat, Signal's continues to grow.
