Signal ignores proxy censorship vulnerability, bans researchers

Parler has entered into business with DDoS-Guard, a Russian firm that routes internet traffic & protects websites from cyberattacks.

...and the app is back: Huge thanks to everyone for your patience and support on this, and apologies for the inconvenience. Thanks also to Google for being transparent and apologetic once we'd established contact. Now, back to preparing for @fosdem!

Update: we just got a call from a Google VP who explained the suspension was triggered by a report of extremely abusive content accessible on the server. Our trust & safety team had already acted on it, and the app should be reinstated shortly.

We've sent a full explanation of Element and Matrix to the Google Play Store Policy team as of 11:44 UTC and we're waiting for a response. Meanwhile we've published a blog post on the situation which we'll keep updated as it evolves:

Google have suspended Element in the Play Store without notifying us😡

Google спря Element в Play Store, без да ги уведоми за решето си.

Every day TeleGuard wins the trust of consumers. In 10 days from the launch of the application there are 10,000 installations

I know many of you use Signal and Telegram, but I suggest joining @TeleGuard and @Swisscows it all comes from Switzerland.

The Russian hosting company may not be able to host Parler.

TeleGuard is the data-secure messenger from Swisscows. Since the smartphone is the most widely used medium in the world today, a secure messenger is necessary to protect your own privacy. Swisscows has set itself the task of protecting its users from data misuse in every situation and is therefore now publishing its own messenger.
