Programs for rapid information exchange are the most widespread nowadays.

Safeguarding Yourself Online
Application data encoding technology is widespread nowadays. There are concerns that the codes may be opened when someone enters the web from a public place connecting to a wireless network and ignoring to secure email address.
Telegram management cooperated with Open Whisper Systems a year ago for solving the security problem. Measures were taken to introduce the security Signal Protocol which works according to the end-to-end encryption scheme meaning that users exchanged data will bypass the central server using the VPN principle, and the encoding method is going to be used by default.
The updated version is protected by a protocol providing strong encryption of both messages and calls. Now when you have a VPN for your device, you may not be afraid of significant information leaks, as well as you can verify the authenticity of incoming text and calls. This can be done by checking the QR code or recording a voice message.
