Protection for Whatsapp, Telegram and iMessage chat

Recommended Posts

among the functions I would add one thing: a protection concerning the messages Whatsapp and Telegram, the SMS practically, at least here in Italy, are received by companies and very few others, otherwise they are not used in practice; it would not be bad even a protection for iMessage even if, even those I know who have an iDevice, use the other two chats mentioned above as 90% of smartphones are Android and the biggest mistake that made Apple a dozen 'years ago and no longer recoverable was to not open iMessage to all SOs.

Unfortunately due to the sandboxed nature of iOS apps, I don't know if Telegram and WhatsApp protections would be possible.

 

They'd have to get in touch with the app developers directly, and I am not sure how Telegram's staff to a request from Malwarebytes. I mean, it's worth a try, but it would be potentially a very risky proposition from Telegram's perspective due to their almost religious focus on user privacy (which I'm very thankful for at times).

 

Now, Telegram is open source, but I'm also not sure if Malwarebytes would want to make their own version of the Telegram client. Even with open source software, it takes a lot of time and effort to develop a client.

Those messaging apps are all end-to-end encrypted, so there really isn't any way to protect them. The only way we can protect Messages on iOS is through SMS, which is only a subset of the Messages ecosystem.
