Well, it seems that battle is already lost.
Mobile Keyboard Apps, which are used to type in those Encrypted Apps, monitor anything its users write, and in some cases collect data. Guess by whom?
The facts show that this “users data leak” is a known factor, but there is no company who can benefit from stopping it:
Fact 2– None of the Security companies offered to give “the masses” secured Keyboard App.

Keyboard Mobile Apps are the ultimate mobile “cookie”. It allows Corporate Companies to monitor what we write at third parties Apps, including within “encrypted” Apps, like Telegram and WhatsApp.
It seems that all sides are “happy” with the current situation: The users who feel “secured” and Corporate Companies who monitor what those “happy” users write.
