When we talk about end-to-end encryption, applications like Signal or Telegram come to mind immediately. Especially after the controversy surrounding the changes in WhatsApp privacy policies at the beginning of 2021.
Having end-to-end encryption in private Messenger or Instagram messages is a desire of many users, due to the confidence that they could gain in the services. But we will have to keep waiting.
Encryption will not reach Instagram and Messenger until at least 2022
This Friday Facebook again committed to bringing end-to-end encryption to Messenger and Instagram. However, don’t expect it to reach both services before 2022.
The announcement was made during a workshop where the future of private communication was discussed. But unfortunately for those who use these apps on a daily basis, they will continue to have to wait for something that the competition already offers.
If you want to have that level of security in your conversations, Signal is the app that I personally advise. However, Telegram is also a very popular app for anyone looking to keep their conversations as private as possible. Even Google has already added encryption to its Messaging app in 2020.
WhatsApp or Signal? In this article you can discover the data that one collects and the other does not. You can also find out more here about Signal, which wants to make communication private and accessible.
