Signal trending as major alternative to WhatsApp
WhatsApp is forcing people to agree to its updated terms and policies, warning users that if they don't accept the new terms, they will not be able to use the app after February 8. This is disappointing, say its users
Hyderabad : The social media chat application 'Signal' has come up as a viable alternative to WhatsApp, which has 200 crore users' worldwide.
Explaining the people's interest in switching to Signal, an entrepreneur from India said, "Around 75 people from Global CEO and Global entrepreneur joined the Signal within 5 hours of sharing the invite, which really shows that people are concerned about their privacy and clearly objecting the privacy policies of WhatsApp trying to roll out.
We are free to switch to an application which provides us privacy," said M N R Gupta, Admin of Global CEO and Global entrepreneur group which has hundreds of entrepreneurs.
"WhatsApp is forcing people to agree to its updated terms and policies, warning users that if they don't accept the new terms, they will not be able to use the app after February 8. This is disappointing and we object to this move by the application and just leaving the messaging platform and migrating to Signal instead. Our privacy is our priority," said D Sai Kiran, Entrepreneur, Ramanthapur.
