The #Signal messenger has become very problematic lately, and most of its problems come from it being centralised.

You may want to follow and support a decentralised messenger project instead, there are many of them on the Fediverse:

➡️ @snikket_im - New initiative giving XMPP servers & clients a newbie-friendly unified look and feel

➡️ @xmpp - The XMPP standards foundation

➡️ @matrix - Matrix is best known for its Element client

➡️ @delta - Messaging through email

➡️ @briar - P2P messaging

> Here are a few examples of things you can’t really do well in a web application:
* Create a fast drawing program
* Build a real-time spell checker with wavy red underlines
* Warn users that they are going to lose their work if they hit the close box of the browser
* Update a small part of the display …without a full roundtrip to the server
* Create a fast keyboard-driven interface that doesn’t require the mouse
* Let people continue working when they are not connected to the Internet

How safe it is to use Delta Chat? Nothing has changed about our stance to user data: we don't have it, not even encrypted, and also no traffic data. Nada. Nothing. Nilch. You insist? Please refer to any of the hundreds of thousands of e-mail servers. Cheers to decentralization :)
