Telegram may be the only app amongst the big players which is focusing on privacy, For those of you who don't know yet.
Telegram is a messaging app but better. Unlike WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook and has been criticized for its data collection practices,
The best thing about Telegram is everything is on the cloud which saves the data storage on our phones.
Another advantage of Telegram over WhatsApp is its commitment to open-source technology. Telegram's source code is available for anyone to view and audit, which allows users and security experts to verify that the app is secure and respects user privacy. WhatsApp, on the other hand, uses proprietary technology, which means that its inner workings are not transparent to users. This lack of transparency has led to concerns about the app's security and data collection practices. Overall, Telegram's focus on user privacy and transparency makes it a better option than WhatsApp for users who are concerned about their online security and privacy.
These are some advantages from many, but we are here to talk about the latest and biggest update on telegram.
