With a centralized system? That's no protection.


Protect yourself now, with a federated standard, Jabber/XMPP =)

That's true, but at least with Signal you have a published protocol, despite the centralisation.  It's not perfect, but for those people out there for whom the "App Store" is the one and only source of software, it's one of the better options.

Well, Jabber/XMPP is something perfectly present in the "App Store", and Google Play ;)

“Enjoy explaining that to a Facebook junkie.

May as well chuck in GNU/Linux while you're at it! ;-)”

Been there, done that (the first part, the second makes no sense).


But still, why would the Facebook junkie be interested in Signal? ;)
