Lots of people are looking for secure chat platforms and stuff like that. So I thought I'd create a poster.
I excluded Telegram because it's pretty much like WhatsApp. And this https://iddqd.press/2019/12/11/telegram-is-an-obvious-honeypot.html
I would've included Signal, but I'm being skeptical here and Signal looks a bit suspicious since it requires your phone number etc.
What are your thoughts on this?
@darksky good call on Telegram. It's actually worse than WhatsApp, WhatsApp is end-to-end encrypted by default, Telegram is not, but the way they portray themselves makes users think it is. Also, no way to end-to-end encrypt groups.
Not sure about Session here. They have a cryptocurrency token tie-in that somehow is supposed to make the network "safer" (than Tor), but some small amount of mined tokens is hard-coded to always go to the organization behind Session:
