In the era of working from home, society is moving towards instant messaging services for communication. WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging application. However, people are doubting the privacy policy of WhatsApp. There are various communication apps like zoom and messenger for video conferencing. The thing is that they are all International. The need for Indian instant messaging was rising in this Lockdown.

Indian government officials were facing the need for instant messaging services. When it comes to confidentiality, the Indian government can never be careless. So, to fulfill that need and become more careful, the Indian government came up with the Sandes app. The National Informatics Centre (NIC) is the developer of this app.

The government will be using this application for inter and intra-organizational communication. This application will provide much-needed privacy to government officials. At first, it was a government-only communication application. But now, it will be available to the general public, after some testing. The privacy policy of the application claims that the system cannot read any personal or group conversations.
