Reminder of why #Signal is far from optimal:
- No #anonymity (every account is connected to a phone number)
- Not #opensource (the git repo of the server hasn't been updated in a year)
- No #decentralization
- No web client, and max. 1 mobile client per account
- No #privacy (your entire contact list is uploaded to the server. It's encrypted, but it's trivial to brute-force encrypted phone numbers. You can prevent it by disabling the PIN feature, but it's enabled by default without warning.)

@matt andOTP will let you do an encrypted backup and can restore it into another device with a password. Somewhat of an attack surface but certainly solves the issue of losing them. And i have tested the restore function. It works beautifully.
Wow, they got @Ubiquiti source code and ransomed them for 50 bitcoin to keep quiet.
This is going to be one to watch.
@bumbervevo For sure! Even Mastodon here. You end up with so much blank space on the sides of most websites anyways.
Because some people still share this thread: Tusky has been reinstated after my appeal.
