Secure Whatsapp Alternatives
For those who are afraid that anything said in Whatsapp might appear on their FB account soon, we collected a few alternatives for Android and iOS. Ok, Viber is probably not the leader in secure communication but swiss based Threema and russian app Telegram are facing an incredible raise of downloads since the whatsapp / FB deal. Telegram had 8M downloads just in one day after the deal was announced. This made it even appear in the top ten of free apps downloads. Founder Pavel Durov has set a $200k bounty set on the one who finds the security leak in his software. This smart PR moves makes his software seem highly trustable whereas Threema is the smart but shy underdog who reached 200k downloads per day.
