Due to security restrictions, the French government cannot use applications like WhatsApp and Telegram. The French government would be afraid that other countries would use WhatsApp to spy their staff. They do not want to use an app that is encrypted by Russia or the United States.

By coming up with their own app, the French government knows for certain that their confidential communication is not in the wrong hands. Twenty employees would already test the app now. It is still unclear how the app will be called and whether the French citizens can use the app later.
