Signal’s Whittaker Criticizes Telegram’s Security Claims

Signal’s president, Meredith Whittaker, criticized Telegram’s security, labeling its founder Pavel Durov’s claims about Signal as false. In a TechCrunch interview, Whittaker stated that Telegram is not encrypted and is the least secure among messaging and social media services. The remarks intensify a debate between Whittaker, Durov, and Twitter owner Elon Musk over platform security, with Whittaker asserting that Signal’s end-to-end encryption and open-source code offer superior privacy, trusted by the security community.
