Previously, Facebook decided to take over Whatsapp in a $19 billion deal. After the announcement, Koum assured that its 465 million monthly active users that nothing would change. However, there has been concerned that Facebook might have access to users private numbers and information in the messenger application. Since then, similar messaging applications like Telegram, which offers secured chat features, have gained popularity.
