RIGHT!!! Riot has turned on End-to-End Encryption by default for all private conversations, and Cross-Signing device verification has landed and is live (and 🤞 performant!) 🎉🎉🎉 Huge amounts of work went into this: https://matrix.org/blog/2020/05/06/cross-signing-and-end-to-end-encryption-by-default-is-here has the overview.
@matrix great! 🎉Hope a non-browser desktop client will follow this lead. :-)
@syster suspect both weechat & gomuks should be well positioned to enable e2ee by default too now :)
