But, as it became known the day before, the founder of the Signal messenger Moxie Marlinspike questioned Telegram’s reputation as an application that provides an additional level of cybersecurity.
According to Marlinspike, messages sent via Telegram do not have any end-to-end encryption and are simply stored on Telegram’s servers in their original form or in plain text. And this implies certain risks for users.
In this regard, the entrepreneur believes that even Messenger from Facebook and WhatsApp seem to be more secure and provide a decent level of privacy.
Some users have already had time to doubt the honesty of the founder of Signal. For example, he was reminded that Signal itself was created by the American authorities as a means for private communication between agents.
