Instant message apps have become a part of our daily lives, especially Whatsapp. There will hardly be anyone without this instant messaging app installed on their phone, and why not, it offers feasibility to not only chat and share pictures and videos with your loved ones, but also have video callings with your friends and family.
Challenging the monopoly of Whatsapp, Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali brand is soon launching their own very Indian version of instant messaging chat application called Kimbho. The tagline of the same reads, “Ab India Bolega.”
Kimbho has similar features as that of Whatsapp and also claims to have AES encryption, but what’s interesting is that the app also allows you to follow your favourite celebrities on the chat platform.
However, recently, a test version of the same was made available on Play Store, but was soon removed and post which one can see some fake apps on the same name available on the download platforms.
As per Business Today, S K Tijarawala, a spokesperson from Patanjali said, “We put our trial version of Kimbho app on Google Play Store and Apple Store for trial for a day only and we had witnessed around 1.5 lakh downloads in the first three hours. We thank the people for such encouraging response.” He also said that the test version is no longer available and they are not responsible for duplicate version available on downloading platforms.
Meanwhile, stating the glitches of the messaging app, a French security researcher by the name Elliot Alderson on Twitter said that it’s a disaster and he could access messages of all users on it.
