WhatsApp recently updated its privacy policy that details the additional information on WhatsApp services and how the app processes user data. The news has also opened the eyes of a large set of smartphone users regarding privacy. Users are now switching to privacy-focused apps like Signal and Telegram. Both these apps offer a high level of security while offering most of the best WhatsApp features.  Signal is a cross-platform encrypted messaging service that is available on iOS, Android, and Windows. 

The platform is an open-source software application that uses end-to-end encryption for messages and media shared between users. You can make video and audio calls on Signal. You can also send links, photos, and videos, similar to WhatsApp.

In case you are a new user, you can move your WhatsApp group to Signal.

Here’s how to move your WhatsApp group to Signal:

Step 1: Create a group on Signal by adding at least one member manually. Give the group your preferred name and profile picture.

Step 2: Once the group has been created, tap on group name and scroll down to get the group link. You will need to generate the group link, which is disabled by default. Turn on the toggle on Signal to get the Signal group link.
