Quickly, hundreds of thousands of users are choosing to quit WhatsApp to join other alternatives. A recent study shows that signal downloads rose 5,001% in January! Signal isn’t the only app that can replace WhatsApp, however. Direct competitor Telegram has also welcomed many new users.
A French alternative, environmentally conscious and respectful of privacy
In France, more precisely in Brittany, the Rennes-based company “Dolmen” does not want to give up its market share. Dolmen developed Treebal, a messaging application that is portrayed as being ethical and respectful of the planet. In response to WhatsApp and other similar applications, Treebal plays the card of ecological responsibility and guarantees its users maximum confidentiality in the management of their data.
To put it simply, David Godest, CEO of Dolmen, describes Treebal as an instant messenger with the main goal of protecting the planet and the personal information of its users. To put it simply, depending on the number of users and the new conversations created, Treebal is committed to planting trees all over the world. On its website, Treebal is categorical: “No greenwashing. Half of the budget resulting from the use of Treebal is reinvested in a responsible and sustainable way in reforestation projects around the world. “
Treebal is now available for Android and iOS and already has a few thousand users.
