What is Signal?
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 7, 2021
Similar to Facebook-owned WhatsApp, Signal also allows one–to-one and group messages to friends and loved ones. The messaging platform also allows users to share files including photos, videos, voice notes, and more. Signal messaging platform is available on Google Play store and Apple App store.
Why is Elon Musk asking to use Signal?
Musk tweeted “Use Signal” probably because he believes Signal is a better and safer messaging platform when compared to Facebook’s WhatsApp. Thousands of WhatsApp users took to Twitter looking for alternative options. Some of the alternative options of WhatsApp that we believe you can try are Telegram and Signal.
While WhatsApp is being mocked by users for collecting personal user information and sending them to Facebook, it can’t be denied that it is the most popular messaging tool in the world right now.
