Question to user:

How much battery percentage does Briar consume for you?

(if you could specify your phone model, OS, and usage habits that be great! Thank you!)

Is there anyone that uses that wants to try it with me?
There is not one person I know that uses briar or will ever try it with me.

Briar is a concept. It works fully offline so if anything ever happens to the internet then you will be able to message people.

@hut
Also no protection from timing correlation attacks and from network-level censorship. Perhaps #Briar is the answer.

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.)
