In a move to show its integrity and to dispel potential backlash against the platform, WhatsApp us suing the Israeli surveillance firm NSO Group.

It is accusing it of helping government spies break into the phones of roughly 1,400 users across four continents.

The hacking spree targets included diplomats, political dissidents, journalists and senior government officials.

Of course, NSO denied the allegations, but what is done is done and users of WhatsApp should be concerned with their security and privacy nonetheless.

To recap, the lawsuit filed in federal court in San Francisco, WhatsApp accused NSO of facilitating ‘governments’ hacking their citizens in 20 countries.

The hacking spree targeted 100 civil society members.

Nevertheless, Indian academics and lawyers have accused Narendra Modi’s government of hacking into their phones.

They discovered their WhatsApp accounts had been targeted earlier this year.

The University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab, which tracks digital surveillance, is tracking the 1,400 telephone numbers across the globe, believing a commercial Israeli spyware targeted them in May. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The spyware was injected on to smartphones through WhatsApp voice call function.

Several leading Indian opposition politicians, including Priyanka Gandhi and Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, were targeted in India.

Alternative to WhatsApp!

According to reports, WhatsApp is one of the most popular online chats in the world. It has over 1.9 billion users in 2019 and 60 billion messages are sent there per day.

It has security with end-to-end encryption for users to enjoy accessible communication with each other.

But it is also vulnerable to hacks and other tricks that put the users at risk. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We offer you a very useful alternative to WhatsApp. Telegram.

Telegram offers end-to-end encryption for all communication and it has the reputation of offering a solid privacy framework.

While WhatsApp groups can only have a few hundred users and you can send messages to only 5 people at a time, Telegram allows you to send text and media message in a chat with up to 200,000 users.

Telegram offers more advanced features than the outdated WhatsApp

It uses a cloud-based technology that allows sending messages faster than any other apps.

It is also lighter, takes less space on your mobile devices and you do not need a phone number once you activate it!

Telegram is free and open-source. And it has hidden gems, such movie networks where you can download your favourite shows and chat groups where things are really happening.

Compared to the restrictions and risks offered by WhatsApp, I would suggest you go for Telegram! Even the terrorists and narcotic dealers uses Telegram. Why? Because they can go undetected for a long, long time.
