End-to-end encrypted messaging platforms Telegram and Signal may have found traction among users after the alleged spyware attack on Facebook-owned WhatsApp recently, but cybersecurity researchers say it is a fallacy to think these platforms are not vulnerable to threats. Both Telegram and Signal provide multiple features that offer an additional layer of privacy to chats, but experts say they still are not immune from cyberattacks.
“Users who are concerned about data privacy may be joining Telegram or Signal today, but the larger user base will be hooked on to WhatsApp because that is where they remain connected with friends and family,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, chief executive of Greyhound Research.
