@haxnet that should be enough if you plan to interact only on 1-to-1 conversations. I tried it out and is not as convenient and feature rich as normal Telegram chats, Signal which is by default E2EE on every chat, has most or all of the features Telegram offers on normal chats. As @kev mentioned, it all depends on your needs and preferences.
@lee8oi I haven't read the post from kev yet but I'm slowly moving away from Signal. Don't get me wrong I like the user friendly approach and Signal is much better than Whatapp in terms of privacy (https://infosec-handbook.eu/blog/signal-myths/) and ethics but it's still centralized and as far as I know the servers are in the US making them vulnerable to US legislation.
