By default, Signal must be the first choice :-TU
for now, Whatsapp is more secure then Telegram. Because by default, Whatsapp can encrypt communications (even in groups)
I deleted Telegram on my phone.
Since WhatsApp is using the Signal protocol, is it possible to communicate between WhatsApp and Signal? Or is it only WhatsApp to WhatsApp and Signal to Signal and no cross-application communication? (A system that allowed cross-application encrypted communication would be amazing)
No. Only Whatsapp-Whatsapp and Signal-to-Signal communications are possible. Cross communication does not exist.
Whatsapp just uses the encryption method of Signal. Whatsapp messages are as encrypted as Signal messaged… Most beautiful thing is encryption is by default. Telegram is not my choice from now on.
But it is Whatsapp (under Facebook hands) so lets see what will happen. I just want to thank Whatsapp, it is very good that billions of people’s messages are encrypted :-TU
Imo it would be nice with a standardized open source P2P IM/VoIP protocol that uses encryption and would be application/platform agnostic (different applications using the protocol could communicate with each-other) Well… I guess we can’t have all we want. :-\
Privacy and security are important in messaging, so following in the footsteps of Chrome, we created Incognito mode in Allo. Chats in Incognito mode will have end-to-end encryption and discreet notifications, and we’ll continue to add new features to this mode.
Finally, we built Duo with privacy and security in mind and all calls on Duo are end-to-end encrypted.
