I so badly hope that the new WhatsApp privacy policy update will make people switch to Signal and other secure (so not Telegram, for the record) messengers.

Back when Facebook acquired WhatsApp I quit it right away, hopefully more people will, now.

I don't think anyone at Signal will ever read this but; good luck people! I fully understand that the insane amount of users joining right now is creating significant server and traffic overloads.

Good luck 💪👊 <3

For those wondering about @SignalApp's scaling, #WhatsApp's decision to sell out its users to @Facebook has led to what is probably the biggest digital migration to a more secure messenger we've ever seen. Hang in there while the Signal team catches up. t.co/xNKz4aYUFJ

1) The consensus of the infosec community is that Telegram is significantly less secure than @SignalApp.

2) Signal is an independent non-profit with a $50m endowment—they can't be meaningfully influenced by money for a very long time. Telegram is a standard private company. t.co/d6nskMRxyP

An interesting wiretapping implant found in an iPhone of a Russian opposition activist. Equipped with an independent SIM and GPS tracker, it was discovered because whoever installed it also broke speaker and FaceId.

@fedops Its not that I don't like greybeards. But having children interested in the FOSS community would give us more hope that the new generation would think about the movement. That's why. And I personally would love to see memes posted by them.

Seeing WhatsApp is forcing users to accept sharing their data to Facebook who else will not be accepting those conditions and rather have their account deleted? #Deletewhatsapp

Ich habe endlich meinen #WhatsApp-Account gelöscht!

Seit der Übernahme durch #Facebook wollte ich da weg. Nun ist klar, dass sie sich nicht an ihr Versprechen halten und Daten mit Facebook teilen werden. Das ist vollkommen inakzeptabel.

Ich habe mit den 2 Kontakten besprochen, was die Änderung der Datenschutzerklärung bedeutet. Sie sind nun auch bei #Signal. Sie überlegen WhatsApp ganz zu löschen.
