However, this did not go down well with users, who are now weighing on exploring ‘WhatsApp alternative’.
Now, the world’s richest man, Elon Musk, has also expressed grave concern about the private encrypted messaging app. The Tesla CEO took to Twitter to give his solution to this. He wrote “Use Signal”.
Signal Private Messenger is another WhatsApp alternative, touted as more secure as it does not ask for other data except for one’s mobile number for registration.
The instant messaging app can be used to make voice and video calls and has almosty all features as WhatsApp. It is available on both Android and iSO.
The app has since seen a massive spike in its registration. Informing about the surge app’s official tweet read “Verification codes are currently delayed across several providers because so many new people are trying to join Signal right now (we can barely register our excitement). We are working with carriers to resolve this as quickly as possible.”
Sharing a meme on Twitter, Musk also suggested that Facebook is responsible for the recent riots in the US Capitol in Washington.
However, this is not the first time Musk has said something against the messaging gaint.
