After the WhatsApp privacy controversy, the Signal application has been downloaded 50 million times via Google Play


The Signal account posted on the Twitter site an image showing the number of times the application was downloaded during the past days, which reached 50 million times, through the Google Play Store only.

The image showed the number of downloads before and after the WhatsApp new privacy problems crisis, which showed an increase in the number of times the application was downloaded 5 times.

The American businessman Elon Musk advised his followers on his Twitter account to use the Signal messaging application, which contributed to the widespread promotion of the application recently.

This comes after global campaigns to boycott WhatsApp because of the new privacy policy, despite the application’s attempts to reassure its users, and its assurance that it maintains the confidentiality of information.

And WhatsApp recently updated its terms of service and privacy policy to inform users of how to manage user data, and how companies can use services hosted on the parent company Facebook (Facebook) for storage and management, which prompted many users to search for alternative applications.

Many users have already started to switch to the Signal app, which was recently considered the best free app on the App Store and Google Play Store in India, bypassing WhatsApp.
