There is no point if your friends don't use it, try to convince close friends and then spread that circle slowly
@nikolal yes that’s the hard part. All are not worried or conscious about privacy at all.
@marc0janssen @nikolal you should ditch both #WhatsApp & #signal. https://github.com/privacytoolsIO/privacytools.io/issues/779 Tell your friends if they really care to stay in touch with you, they would not impose a system that requires you to register a phone#.
@marc0janssen @nikolal convincing ppl to use #Signal makes you part of the problem. You become the person that pushes people into a #walledgarden that excludes those who don't want to share their ph# & patronize all the privacy-abusing tech giants. See https://github.com/privacytoolsIO/privacytools.io/issues/779
@marc0janssen @nikolal the neo-nazi hiring is recent - this isn't WW2. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/amazon-used-neo-nazi-guards-to-keep-immigrant-workforce-under-control-in-germany-8495843.html
@marc0janssen @techit @nikolal it's very Trump-like to cry "hoax" or "conspiracy" as a knee-jerk reaction as you are. But it doesn't work - not without citing your sources. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/amazon-used-neo-nazi-guards-to-keep-immigrant-workforce-under-control-in-germany-8495843.html
Even though wire is #foss and one doesn't need ph# and can use disposable #email with #wire. wire target market is #enterprise, 🤑not the consumer market🤢, although they have free consumer app. wire is more for #security rather than #anonymity as their #metadata is saved on wire servers in #cleartext. It can also be self-hosted.
So wire is good for security, but not to be #anonymous😎 (sort of if disposable email used)
Just my two cents input.
