I've been trying out #Briar messenger, in the last few days. It's a very impressive software. Love the concept!
But it's kinda lonely 😅, can't find many people using it.
If anyone is using Briar, lets add each other and test it out!

@mesh4545 Understood. Personally I don't have use for life-dependent hard security. On Matrix end to end encryption and metadata staying on private homeservers is enough for me even for private discussions.
@cos Thats true for most people, a good open source messenger that's not centralized...
But it's good that projects like this exist; you'll never know when you might need it in the future 😉
You're right.. it's not really meant for everyday use. I'm just playing around with it.
It's still in development will improvebin the future
In >settings you can also turn on/off the App lock, which is an additional setting and lets you continue to run Briar in the background, also when it's locked.
If you give it another try, feel invited to send us feedback.
@mesh4545 i just tried connecting to you. Here's mine
Yup we just have to wait for further development!
Hopefully Briar-gtk will be ready by the time linux phones go mainstream
