WhatsApp is one of the most used instant messaging apps across the world, there's no doubt in that. But having said that, Hike, the Indian originated app, best known for its versatile stickers, isn't way behind in the league.
Though it doesn't enjoy a huge user base like WhatsApp, it has a pretty decent number of registered users. Earlier this year, Hike claimed that it has more than 100 million registered users with more than 40 billion messages exchanged every month.
In comparison to WhatsApp, Hike has a good number of unique features up its sleeve. One such feature is the hidden mode, where it allows you to password protect the conversations you intend to hide.
