Messaging Apps That Are Secure: Signal vs. WhatsApp

Consumers are increasingly concerned about their privacy as more communication and information is sent via messaging apps.

Two messaging apps, Signal and WhatsApp, have become a common place for people to talk to each other instead of sending a text. Figuring out what happens to those conversations, some of which may include personal or financial details or even current events such as Roe v. Wade being overturned, is critical to maintaining privacy.

Both WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta Platforms (META) – Get Meta Platforms Inc. Reportand Signal, which is owned by a nonprofit called the Signal Foundation, are very secure since they offer end-to-end encryption (E2EE), Jason Glassberg, co-founder of Casaba Security, a Redmond, Wash.-based ethical hacking company, told TheStreet.
