Perché è diverso da Telegram

Why WhatsApp is not good



Perks

The perks of Signal are simple:

  1. no data is collected except your phone number
  2. While remaining a super neat and simple messaging app, it uses military-grade encryption by default
  3. Its source code is open and publicly audited, which means that anyone could check how Signal works and verify its actual respect of the user’s privacy
  4. Signal is owned by a nonprofit: anything about Signal has the sole purpose of serving the user, not making money. Signal survives only thanks to donations and investments.
