Telegram founder takes a dig again at WhatsApp, calls it 'surveillance tool'
According to Durov, the planted backdoors enable governments, law enforcement, and hackers to get around encryption and other security measures.
Telegram founder Pavel Durov has often criticised WhatsApp. This time he called the messaging platform a ‘surveillance tool. The Telegram founder has urged the users to stay away from the Meta-owned WhatsApp. He has highlighted a security issue disclosed by WhatsApp last month and said that the messaging platform has been putting user data at risk. He urged people to use any other instant messaging app except WhatsApp.
