The latest update of the Telegram app may cause a lot of problems because many iPhone users may no longer use the app due to privacy issues

With more than 500 million users worldwide, Telegram is one of the most popular cloud messaging applications and an important competitor to WhatsApp. WhatsApp users are dissatisfied with the privacy policy changes in the latest controversial update, which may affect nearly 2 billion users.

Through this update, Facebook can access all user data. Those users who do not want to share privacy with Facebook can only use limited features. With the controversial upgrade of WhatsApp, and the good user growth after Telegram tried to convince people that WhatsApp misled users in terms of privacy policies, the battle between these two competitors intensified.

Facebook has spared no effort to convince its users that their private chats are encrypted and that Facebook has nothing to do with users’ private chats. What users do has nothing to do with Facebook. Initiated a campaign and WhatsApp does not have the right to grant Facebook or third parties access to user data. Telegram tried to convince people that WhatsApp lied to its users.

But now, after too many accusations made by competing messaging apps, Telegram’s latest update may itself be problematic. The platform initially collected basic user data, such as contact information, name, etc., but now, according to Forbes, it contains more detailed information about users, such as  Their financial data, emails, private chats, and specific locations. The platform inadvertently collected these data.

All the information collected by the platform is related to users and their roles. However, it is believed that the amount of data collected by the platform is significantly less than the amount of data collected. Its competitor is WhatsApp. If we compare Telegram with its competitors Signal and iMessage, the main options become clearer. Telegram tries to base its position on Apple’s privacy label because it does not even intend to collect data for personalized displays.

In order to promote its users instead of passing user data to third parties, it uses data to implement its own functions so that the platform can operate efficiently and securely. He also explained his views on collecting irrelevant financial data and location, which the platform uses only when users try to access certain functions. It is easy to understand that the platform does not provide data encryption, but a cloud-based messaging application where employees can even access information.

Users trust platform recommendations, not password strength. The new Telegram update has put the platform into trouble. Facebook is taking advantage of these benefits in the same way that Telegram does not provide chat encryption by default. Facebook also highlighted the Telegram failure that lost a large amount of user data in the East Telegram update. It may also affect 500 million users worldwide. After collecting accurate location data from users and connecting to their personal information, Messenger cannot remain secure. Users should think carefully before leaving WhatsApp and switching to Telegram. As safe as its competitor Signal.
