My opinion is: #Signal is the best we have!
Let's criticize what is shitty but also acknowledge what it has archived. There is no sense in telling people that #Signal is no better than #WhatsApp or something like that. Signal is constantly improving and I wouldn't know how to do better.


@heimdall I my opinion is a far better approach. A crypto messenger based on phone numbers cannot be really privacy friendly. And Intel SGX doesn't look like a good security concept to base a messenger on.

But even Threema isn't open source, so neither choice is really good.

@ls Signal tries to become independent of phone numbers, the PIN is a first step. I also want to point out, that the pin can be longer than 4 characters, so you don't have to depend on Intel SGX
