WhatsApp's new privacy policy says that it will use users' personal data to grow their business. At the same time, the tagline of Signal App is the biggest option of WhatsApp, 'Say Hello to Privacy'. In such a situation, it is certain that through this app, users will get a guarantee of privacy, which is the most important for any user.

Signal is also a messaging app just like WhatsApp. You can also use this app on Android device as well as iOS i.e. Apple device, Mac and Window device.

The name of the company that created this app is Signal Foundation. It is a non-profit company. The person who created this app is named Moxie Marlinspike. This is a US-based cryptographer, so the Signal app is also an American app. The foundation of this app was laid in 2013 but it was built on 10 January 2018.

Permission to add 150 people to Signal app group

The features of the Signal app are almost the same as WhatsApp. Through this app, you can send or receive photos and videos while chatting with anyone. Apart from this, you can also make audio and video calling through this app. In this app also you can create a group like WhatsApp but this app has the facility to add a maximum of 150 people in a group. However, now it may happen that the signal company allows to add more than 150 people in a group.

Delete for everyone feature

Through this app you will not be able to directly add anyone to a group. If you process a person to add to the group, then first a notification will go and then if they want to approve, then only you will be able to add them to your group. Through this app you can delete any group chat through the Delete For Everyone feature.

Signal security

Now let's talk about the security of this app, which is most important at this time. The security of the signal app is praised by none other but Brian Acton himself as the co-founder of WhatsApp itself. In 2017, Brian said goodbye to WhatsApp and gave $ 59 million funding to the Signal app. At the same time, the co-founder of WhatsApp himself praised the security of the signal app.

How much Signal app safe privacy from WhatsApp

Actually Signal is much safer than WhatsApp because WhatsApp allows you to store 16 types of information from users to use your app. At the same time, Signal only stores the users' mobile number because through that the user's Signal account runs. At the same time, WhatsApp encrypts only messages and calls end-to-end, while the Signal app also meta-data encrypted end-to-end, meaning that not only users' messages and calls but also their personal data are also end-to-end encrypted.

For these reasons the Signal app is far better than WhatsApp and if WhatsApp does not change the new privacy policy it has made, then the users will definitely quite WhatsApp and adopt the Signal app.
