Thanks for the 80 replies. 10 people here would recommend both, 47 Signal, and 23 Element.
Also thanks for the text replies!
People say frequently that Signal is easier to handle than Element. I think they have different use cases, but I do agree.
@firstname.lastname@example.orgYou shared that Signal does not store your phone number. Do you know how that works?
@bsm You shared that Telegram is not really an option if you want security and privacy. Could you substantiate that with sources? :)
Yup; they explain it decently on this page; "Does Signal send my number to my contacts? – Signal Support" https://support.signal.org/hc/en-us/articles/360007061452-Does-Signal-send-my-number-to-my-contacts-#:~:text=Signal%20periodically%20sends%20truncated%20cryptographically,then%20immediately%20discards%20this%20information.
I do remember there is a more detailed blog, but didn't find it yet.
Thanks! Cryptographically hashed phone numbers 🎉
#Telegram: the last thing, that wasn‘t really pleasant was, that Telegram is always able to locate - they know you‘re exact home address. If wanna read (just in German) some more: https://www.kuketz-blog.de/telegram-sicherheit-gibt-es-nur-auf-anfrage-messenger-teil3/
