    Imagine that some person teleported from 2000 to these days. He meets some people and in order to be in contact with them he buys a mobile phone. He heard from them that they use messengers for communication that save money (you have no need to communicate through SMS anymore).

    So he opens the market and sees tens of different messengers: there are encrypted ones, blockchain based, simple, those that need no internet connection and so on.

    Which one to choose? It can be hard even for modern people. Usually we do our choice according to our friends and family choice.

    So what is your favorite messenger and why?
    I'm especially interested in private ones.

    Why later? It seems that now crypto era is in its prime and the time had come already.
    As for WhatsApp I don't really like it as I'm not very sure in its privacy telling the truth. But still there are dozens of people all over the world who use it.

    There are really good and secured messengers. Let's now look from your point of view. When you see news about leak of information everyday don't you feel worry?
    As for me I decided to witch to something more private in order not to let others read my messages and see my photos.

    Quite a good choice by the way! But on the whole it's not much better than Telegram is. It also collects and stores all your data on servers and has an access to your messages.
    So if you're looking for privacy it's better to choose something else.

    If you are talking about convenience, then why did you remember WhatsApp? :) it is an old man in the market of messengers, I have been using it since 2010, but in usability this is not the most convenient messenger. seriously, here you need to choose something else. Telegram for example the most convenient to use.

    I think that Adamant is good enough - it's quite private, there's no need installing the application and it allows crypto transfers.
    If you're into crypto - it will suit you for sure. I've heard about some other messaging apps, but can't remember it's name now.

    Maybe convenient but not private for sure. But if you have nothing to hide and it's okay for you that someone can access all your messages - then okay.
    I want to have my private life.

    I had to use it once because of the working dialogue. I constantly thought how to answer the case as soon as possible and leave it. this is the real creation of a blind boy. Do you seriously use it all the time?

    Yes, I use it as a main messenger and feel very comfortable.
    What was the exact point that you didn't like in it?

    OMG, do you really also think that some kind of "surveillance" is behind you and your life is interesting to someone?

    I don’t remember exactly, I have a general opinion from all this messenger. As soon as that workflow ended, I immediately deleted it. I do not need to fill in the memory of their devices with all sorts of unnecessary things like this second-rate messenger.

    My crypto wallets and other confidential information may be interesting to lots of people.
    I don't use messenger for chatting with friends only.

    You can try Adamant messenger or Crypviser they are both private enough and the second is especially good if you deal with crypto.

    There's no need for me to create a new messengers as good ones already exist.
    But you and your skepticism better use a mail post in which you probably trust more than in anything else.

    If Adamant is a second-rate messenger then which one is better for you?
    If you'll mention something like Telegram or WhatsApp it will be really funny for me.

    I'd better choose that way as I really believe in end-to-end encryption. Some messengers are open source which means that they have nothing to hide and you can check everything and get sure that they have NO access to your information.
    Another messengers don't store any kind of information and if they don't store it - how can it be hacked??

    I will tell you more - he probably used ICQ as it was developed in 1996 :) Interesting, right?
    And I didn't tell that he MUST learn crypto and choose crypto messenger.
    The topic is about your favorite messenger and messengers discussion and comparison on the whole.

    because of my profesion I've tested lot of them

    I'd prefer not to share my personal data, meterials etc, rather than blindly believe in miracles

    So you test all of them and prefer security, okay..
    Why did you choose Telegram then??? You think it's really secured enough? :)))

    I kindly believe that even if a person was teleported and he stays here - he has to learn everything in order to become successful.
    Wouldn't you agree?

    u know, now I'm not sure in tomorrow
    Telegram was secured enough before, but today I'm not sure
    I like interface and ability to receive videomess without downloading

    but there is news e.g. "Telegram stolen our data" , that's why I don't believe in any networks
    Telegram was my fav, it's true

    I don't know what Telegram do you have, but I have to download every video message in order to watch it and it makes my phone memory full all the time..
    But I like the point that you understand that Telegram is not trusty anymore.
    Then I have a question - what is better now. You have to know that if you deal with different messengers.
