The start of the new year may not have been good for WhatsApp, as users are now getting away from it because of its new privacy policy. Even the company had to clarify that the private data of users is completely safe with them. 

But still, the number of its users is showing a decline. Instead, the Signal app has started making its place among the people. Not only that, but the Telegram app is also now becoming more popular among users and it can be gauged from the fact that 2.5 crore new users have added it in the last 72 hours.

Telegram CEO Pavel Durov has shared the information and said that Telegram has crossed the number of 500 million monthly active users. In view of WhatsApp’s new privacy policy, the platform has added 25 million new users from all over the world within 72 hours. This includes 38 percent from Asia, 21 percent from Latin America, and 8 percent from the Middle East and North Africa.

Durov said in a blog post that “this is a significant increase compared to last year when 1.5 million new users signed up every day.” During our 7-year history of protecting users ‘ privacy, downloads have seen such a surge for the first time. People no longer want to transact their privacy for free service. Nor do they want to be held hostage by technical monopolies. ‘
