Nonetheless, there is one crucial feature that presumably put Telegram above other messenger app and that is its envied security structure which enables you chat discretely without any exterior entity (apart from you and your chat buddy) having access to what you have discussed.

However, experts still do have it that the Telegram messenger isn’t as secure as it claims to be due to the fact that it doesn’t use an open protocol. It uses a customized protocol that has the ability to gather information about your connection to its server which is seen as a weakness to its crypto circle.

According to experts, your best bet for a secure and private messenger app is Signal and Google has partnered with Open Whisper System – the brains behind the Signal messenger – to give the potential Allo users private messaging and a secure protocol whilst in Incognito Mode.

With a fully secure incognito mode, niche additions and our personal favorite, the “Whisper shout” feature, we might just see Allo messenger rise to be the best within a short period of time. Who knows, they might just double up Telegram’s newly upgraded super group as well.
