If you’re considering uninstalling WhatsApp, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are several alternative apps to choose from:

1. Telegram

With over 400 million users, Telegram is one of the most popular WhatsApp alternatives.

Although it is very similar to WhatsApp, it is distinguished by the fact that it offers the possibility to set messages to self-destruct after a certain time, without leaving any traces.

Telegram also offers end-to-end encryption.

However, as a WhatsApp spokesperson noted, Telegram “doesn’t offer end-to-end encryption by default, so it’s not necessarily more secure than WhatsApp.”

2. Signal

Signal is one of the most secure messaging apps, thanks to the fact that it is open source.

This means that the code for the app is publicly available for viewing, making it nearly impossible for the app’s creators to sneak in backdoors that allow governments or hackers to spy on your messages.

3. iMessage

If you’re using an iPhone, consider simply switching to iMessage, Apple’s proprietary messaging app.

The app has some impressive features, including no character limits, the ability to send photos and videos, and of course Apple’s animated emoji feature, Animoji.

Unfortunately, iMessage is only available to iPhone users, so you’ll struggle to communicate with anyone using an Android.

4. Google Messages

Google’s answer to iMessage is Google Messages, a messaging service for Android.

The app replaces your default texting app and integrates with all of Google’s apps and services, making it easy to share images or use Google Assistant.

5. Facebook Messenger

If you wouldn’t use WhatsApp because of Facebook data sharing, Facebook Messenger might not be the best option for you.

However, the app offers some useful features including games, secret conversations, and video calls.
