Can Threema Dethrone WhatsApp?


We are all used to working with WhatsApp, which has become an essential tool in this digital world, both in the professional field and in the personal field. Although WhatsApp is the industry leader, the new Threema app wants to change this scenario, using privacy as its main weapon.

In today’s world, with special emphasis in particular for the last year, privacy have been getting its due importance, and until now, the leaders on the communication area in terms of privacy and security were the Telegram and Signal apps, due to their high level of security, since both of them encrypt all communications to ensure that your conversations remain private, but Threema intends to take security a step further.

So far, the only application that remains unharmed in terms of security is Signal, since Messenger and WhatsApp have very low security standards and Telegram security has been reportedly broken several times.
