All secure chat software requires phone. Stop that. : privacy – https://teddit.net/r/privacy/comments/mom5lc/all_secure_chat_software_requires_phone_stop_that/gu4m4e7/#c
Any who have the source for this?
@edgren source comparing chat apps?
Or source about Signal using usernames?
@bbbhltz No, source about Signal are working on a username only system. I thought that would understanding since I linked to that comment on reddit 😅
To be honest, I am not interested in a replacement for Signal. I don't even use it. I only got curious if Signal are in fact trying to replace phone number registration with username registration.
But thank you anyway 🙂 Movim looks extremely interesting, though 😍 A social network that will be using E2EE! Or is it only for the chat in Movim that will be using OMEMO?
Movim sounds like a mixture of briar and xmpp.
I’m actually testing it for the pas month or so. The idea is brilliant and great BUT the community and content are mostly NSFW as far as I have explored and I didn’t see any proper filter to turn them off, and certainly I’m not going to suggest it to friends and family who are under age. The idea of having blog and messenger in one platform is interesting but perhaps unnecessary bloat.
@Mehrad Alright. I've tried Briar. Super buggy and super undeveloped! 😒 😅 With other words: not my thing.
Oh. I tried to login with my XMPP username, but couldn't because of "server overload" or something like that.
