Meanwhile, WhatsApp introduced a new privacy policy. Its users were outraged by that. WhatsApp then took a step back. But it is clear that Telegram has benefited from it. In January 2021, Telegram became the most downloaded non-gaming app.

Telegram broke Tiktok’s record in this regard and, according to the Sensor Tower report, in January 2021, the Telegram messaging app was downloaded by almost six and a half million people. This is a 3.8 percent increase over January 2020.

These new figures show that Telegram has benefited from the controversial policy of WhatsApp. WhatsApp announced its new privacy policy and users began looking for alternatives. This has led to an increase in Telegram and Signal app downloads.
