TextSecure: Everything Right This Time


Now that we've established that going from WhatsApp to Telegram is a move that makes no sense at all: it's not safe, as discussed at UnhandledExpression, its "challenge" to hack it is no more than a publicity stunt for the ignorant masses, as Moxie sarcastically states, not to mention that if your reasoning is "I don't want Facebook to have all my data", switching to Telegram just means you can now worry about whether your contact info and that of all your friends went to the Russian big competitor VK, as your address book's numbers are saved onto their server, maybe it's time to shed some light on an alternative that does check all the right boxes, is as easy to use as WhatsApp, open source, and has people working on it that in fact know about encryption.
