Security no longer matters

Just so everyone is aware, security and encryption on any mobile device don't matter anymore. WikiLeaks released info that the CIA and NSA have had the ability to compromise almost any mobile device with or w/o root access and intercept keystrokes, screen display data, and anything else they want before whatever you send is encrypted and sent.

I'm not saying don't use it! By George, always make it harder for anyone to intercept your data! I'm just saying don't feel like you're so secure in your shell when the big guys have had hidden devices inside all along.

And as always, take everything you read with a grain of salt. Do your own research.

Telegram is lightweight, works on all platforms including desktops, has an open architecture, bots, stickers, gifs and other features which make it superior comparing to other messenger like WatsApp. Moreover such features as tags make Telegram usable as communication and project management tool such as Slack.

Fast, free and secure. Tons of features but still light-weight and reliable.
