Whatsapp in danger: Signal is the fastest growing app!

Due to the controversial privacy policy of WhatsApp, people started finding alternatives. One of the best alternative apps to WhatsApp is considered to be Signal. This app was also appreciated by Elon Musk himself. Due to the controversy, Whatsapp delayed the introduction of the new privacy policy to May 15. However, since we are moving closer to the date, people have now started installing Signal more than ever. According to GulfNews, Signal is now the fastest growing app worldwide, both in terms of downloads and monthly active users in the first quarter of the year.

There is also another app that is being used as an alternative to WhatsApp. Telegram is more feature-rich than WhatsApp, although it may not be as simple. But for those who are familiar with the features of Telegram, they know how useful it is. Telegram stands at number 3 in downloads as per the report. Although, the monthly active users are a lot more in Telegram. According to the analytics, Telegram is at 2nd number globally for its MAUs (Monthly active users).


The reason behind the sudden increase in downloads and MAUs is the WhatsApp privacy policy. It got everyone’s attention, and those who care for their privacy, went looking for other apps in the market. Let’s just admit, WhatsApp is not the best messaging app. And with this bizarre privacy policy, the app has been affected badly. The download of Signal and Telegram is increasing day by day. Signal is for those who prefer simplicity while Telegram is recommended for those who want a feature-rich experience.

Which app will take the throne?

Whatsapp, signal and telegram

Although, it doesn’t mean Signal lacks features. Signal has a built-in image editing tool that lets you crop and flips your photos. It has a dark mode, which makes it look modern. Plus, it is very fast! The app is currently having 50,000,000+ installs in Play Store alone, with a rating of 4,5 stars. On the other hand, Telegram was also used before the privacy policy controversy of Whatsapp. Hence, it is more popular. Telegram allows you to make group chats with up to 200,000 members. There are bots that can come in handy for managing the groups. Plus, you can find groups and communities related to your interests in Telegram. Which app will win? Signal, Telegram, or will WhatsApp continue to sit on the throne? Let us know in the comments section below!
