Signal has been one of the apps that has benefited most from WhatsApp’s bad times, registering an unprecedented peak in popularity in its history. Another beneficiary has been Telegram, another privacy-focused app that, according to Business Insider, had 25 million downloads in just 72 hours.
Telegram, founded in 2013 by Russian Pavel Durov, is one of the most popular apps in the privacy area. The popularity of this application is such that Telegram currently has 500 million active users.
