The decision for Signal to not back up messages by default—and to make users deal with the backup files manually—is kind of decision that sours people on privacy-first technology. If your out of the box experience is that users lose data, it's not good.
@cassidyjames elementaryOS doesn't come with any backup solution. Are you planning something, e. g. akin to Timemachine?
@cassidyjames Speaking of unencrypted PC's. Looking forward to hearing news about the new installer, especially after the 'encrypt my home folder' was taken out of action from the current one 😥️
@cassidyjames In my point of view, part of the "encrypt everything" philosophy is to let go. We need to forget and move on.
@babel that is a distinctly different concern and has its own implications. Unexpectedly throwing out people's data is an awful, hostile experience and will guarantee that you lose users.
