WhatsApp alternatives for security and privacy 2021

Taking the concerns of WhatsApp privacy policy, I have created a list of all the safe platforms to chat on and the top best alternatives of WhatsApp which are more fucussed on data end-to-end encryption policy. India’s most popular freeware social media application, Hike messenger also shuts down due to the company fall. Apart from WhatsApp, Signal application is rising these days to make the data encrypted and protected. Like Signal, I have added many other social chatting applications. It's time now to remove WhatsApp and move on to other app.

Signal Private Messenger

Signal is the safest platform in privacy and end-to-end encryption in one-to-one messages and group messages. The file sharing of all types of photos, videos, audios, files etc. are encrypted. Developed by signal foundation and team. The social media does not generate it's own business. It is funded by the public and thus, there are no ads and no data breaches.


This service also provides end-to-end encryption of data in all types of chats, calls, video calls etc. Telegram was founded in 2013 in Russia and later moved on to Germany. People relied on Telegram. It was really a user friendly. Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram offered private groups as well as public groups or public channels. Public channel has no limit in the no. of users. In January 2021, Telegram surpassed 500 million monthly active users. It was the 8th most downloaded app worldwide in 2020.


Skype is most popularly known for video calls and voice calls over the internet. Although, it supports text messaging as chatting but it lacks here in generating business in chatting. But they ruled the internet in video chatting for the past 17 years since 2003. Skype is available in all devices like computer, tablet, mobile, Xbox, smartwatch etc. in all OS like Mac OS, Windows, Android, iPhone etc. Here also, the data is really protected. There is no complaints regarding data breach.

Google Hangouts

Hangouts developed by Google Inc. A part of Google for one-to-one messaging, calling and video calling. People can easily get in touch with friends because it is signed up with both mobile as well as email. So, it's really very convenient to get in touch with loved ones.


Viber is cross-platform messaging app developed by Japanese. Viber is provided as free for the iOS, Android, Mac OS, Windows, Linux and many more. Users are registered and identified by the cellular telephone number. The service is also available on the desktop without any mobile connectivity.


LINE is a freeware social media cross-platform. LINE features the social services like chatting and calling to all the contacts who are available on LINE. LINE is available on Android, iOS, Windows, Mac etc. LINE has more than 500 million downloads on Google Play Store.

Kik Messenger

Kik Messenger is diverse social media platform which features to dive into a pool of people. It opens the borders of a limited circle. You can contact with anyone out there. Just make a group or join any group through QR code or link sharing. The good thing is there is no need of providing your cellular telephone number for identity authentication. Kik is popular in its own terms and conditions. The application is good for anonymity, people can go anonymous and try messaging. This brings a major drawback in the application, the messages are not end-to-end encrypted. Kik can use IP address and location.
