How to transfer WhatsApp group chats to Signal messaging app- Technology News

WhatsApp recently updated its Terms of Service and privacy policy informing users how the user data will be handled by the platform, how businesses can use Facebook hosted services to store and manage, and the company partners with Facebook to offer integrations across the Facebook Company Product. Many WhatsApp users are now looking for alternatives for the app in other end-to-end encrypted messengers like Telegram and Signal. Several users have already started to make the shift, which recently made Signal the top free app on App Store and Play Store in India, surpassing WhatsApp.

However, switching platforms often involves the dilemma of forfeiting your data on the platform. But apps like Signal are making it easier to make this shift. Here is how you can transfer your group chats from WhatsApp to Signal.
