Uhm, didn't see that coming (totally did):

The Wire messenger changed ownership in July, didn't really notify anyone as per their own privacy policy, and now belongs to a US entity called "Wire Group Holdings":


Not sure how I feel about that (totally do).


@fribbledom Wasn’t Wire messenger a messaging app offering end to end encryption?


Indeed. It may still be a better alternative to most other competitors. However, I still find it a bit shady to "silently" move ownership to a different entity.

@fribbledom It should raise alarm bells, is the ownership transferred to a new entity a consortium or has a new one been registered.
