WhatsApp, your app for simple & secure messaging
WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging apps in the world, and it recently celebrated its 10th birthday. As far as stories go, this one's full of milestones.
In 2014, Facebook bought WhatsApp. One year later, the app became more than an extension to your phone, with the platform made available on PCs through WhatsApp Web.
WhatsApp’s features include:
● Sending messages
● Making voice and video calls for free
● Group chats with up to 100 people
The global network that WhatsApp managed to create is now breaking down all communication barriers between like-minded people. It’s no wonder that over 1.5 billion people all around the world use WhatsApp.
Not all countries are WhatsApp fans
It’s not all good news when it comes to WhatsApp.
So far, WhatsApp has refused to cooperate with court orders and has not given up any personal user data. As you can imagine, the authorities in question were not happy about this.
What’s more, conservative religious countries take issues with WhatsApp’s video calls feature. They fear the app can be used for sexually explicit images.
As a result, WhatsApp has been temporarily or entirely banned in:
If you are living in or traveling to these countries, you won’t be able to use WhatsApp. And let’s not forget. WhatsApp is part of the Facebook family, so bans on one social network could also apply to the other one.
WhatsApp also faces regional blocks
Even in countries where there are no official restrictions on WhatsApp, local networks or Internet Service Providers can make access impossible. There are many workplaces where WhatsApp has been blocked to limit bandwidth usage and to increase productivity.
Schools, universities and libraries are also among the institutions that restrict access to WhatsApp to counter cheating.
But this shouldn’t prevent you from receiving that breaking story or participating in WhatsApp-based study groups.
With CyberGhost VPN, you can now bypass restrictions. Here’s how it works.

Ditch the WhatsApp proxy, get a VPN
Using a free proxy service to reroute your internet traffic might seem appealing, but it comes at a price. Since there’s no encryption, you’re handing over your data to a third party and hoping for the best.
Take no risks, keep your private data safe with a virtual private network!
Proxy features are limited, and there’s not much security involved. This is a problem since your private information could easily be exposed or sold to third parties.
If you want to unblock and use WhatsApp safely, CyberGhost VPN is the service for you.

The messaging battle of our time
Messaging apps have made our lives easier, allowing us to keep in touch with our loved ones, no matter how far apart we are. But the fight to decide the best and most secure messaging app is still ongoing. Let’s take WhatsApp and Telegram, two of the most popular messaging apps.
Here’s how they’re different.
|Registration requirements||A phone number||A phone number or an username|
|Sending texts, photos, videos, and files|
|Making voice calls or sending voice messages|
|Maximum participants in a group chat||100||1000|
|Emojis, GIFs, stickers|
|Desktop client||Yes (but lacks encryption)|
|Web version||Yes (but lacks encryption)|
|End-to-end encryption||Secret chats only|
|Encrypted local storage|
|Visualize media without downloading it|
|Automatic backup of messages in the cloud|
|Offline key verification|
|Needs access to your contacts|
Messaging apps are no fun without privacy. Having governments or your ISP snoop on your chats can pose a risk, especially in countries where freedom of speech is restricted.
WhatsApp vs. Telegram
Let’s take a closer look at the privacy options of these two messaging apps.
All WhatsApp chats, whether private or in a group, use end-to-end encryption, whereas only the secret chats in Telegram are encrypted.
However, Telegram throws in more perks than just encryption. With secret chats, you can disable screenshots, set a self-destruct time for messages, and disable link previews. Additionally, it’s not possible to forward messages. These types of chats cannot be backed up in iCloud or Google Drive. This might be a drawback for some users but remember: storage services are not 100% secure and can be breached.
Telegram will also automatically delete your account and all information related to it if you don’t use it for six months. You can also set this to one month or one year.
Another privacy-friendly feature within Telegram is the option to control who can add you to groups. This will make it harder for spammers or stalkers to get in touch with you.
On the other hand, it’s impossible to ignore that fact that WhatsApp is the app that made chat encryption the norm. Also, it prides itself on encrypted phone calls as well. With Telegram, you have to take the extra step to create a secret chat.
Plenty of other secure messaging and video chat services are available, so make sure to choose the right one for you.
