There has been so many security issues with the privacy of users at WhatsApp recently, so the people are looking for the same function in some other app which in addition to provide same features as WhatsApp; takes care of user’s privacy.
WhatsApp has recently been acquired by social media giant Facebook for hefty 19 billion dollar which will come as 12 billion share of Facebook, 4 billion in cash and worth 3 billion of stock for the co-founders and the employee at later stage.
Just after Facebook acquired WhatsApp, the service went down for sometime and WhatsApp hoax had also seen to be surfacing.
So due to security reasons and lack of some interesting features that other apps are offering to the users forcing them to switch to other alternatives.
When we talk about the best alternative of WhatsApp, the very first name comes in mind is TELEGRAM. Telegram was started back in 2013 and its a clone of WhatsApp with many additional features like signing off the messenger while internet is on, group chat with 400 people, Secret chat option to provide end to end encryption etc.
One of the biggest advantage of Telegram is that, it is free for whole life. Apart from it, all the data that people share using Telegram is stored on cloud so it can be accessed from anywhere in the world using different devices. Telegram is pretty much faster and secure also as they have servers at different location.
Telegram takes very much care of the privacy of users and every message sent/received is heavily encrypted with the option to self-destruct automatically.
So the alternative of WhatsApp is pretty much secure, faster and do a lot more than it. According to the one of the latest news, Telegram is adding 5 million users per day which is a very huge.
Although its a mobile app but the people who do not carry iOS or Andriod smartphones can use Telegram on PC. I have listed down few steps to get Telegram for PC below:
Step 1- Get an Emulator for the PC first. Go go BlueStacks and download it based on your requirement (Windows or MAC).

Step 3- Once bluestacks is installed, go to search app and write “Telegram”.

Step 5- Install it by clicking the app.
Step 6-Once the app is install, go for registration process by entering the mobile no.
You are done!
