Pavel through his Telegram channel said, “People no longer want to exchange their privacy for free services. They no longer want to be held hostage by tech monopolies that seem to think they can get away with anything as long as their apps have a critical mass of users. Unlike other popular apps, Telegram doesn’t have shareholders or advertise to report to.”
The founder of Telegram then added,” We don’t do deals with marketers, data miners or government agencies. Since the day we launched in August 2013 we haven’t disclosed a single byte of our user’s private data to third parties.”
He also shared the percentage of people who have joined Telegram services from all over the globe as he said, “These new users came from across the globe-38% from Asia, 27% from Europe, 21% from Latin America and 8% from MENA (the Middle East and North Africa).”
The CEO further added, “This is a significant increase compared to the last year when 1.5M new users signed up every day. We’ve had surges of downloads before, throughout our 7-year history of protecting user privacy. But this time is different.”
Whatsapp came into play
