Switched to Telegram? You need to know this about its encryption
Telegram encrypts all your chats but doesn’t offer the same level of protection as Signal or WhatsApp by default


Was surprised people suggested telegram as an alternative


@cubicgarden I think telegram doesn't show your phone number to everyone.

So if your threat model involves the people you are communicating with *knowing* your phone number.. Telegram is good.

Same with "kik". Infosec geeks go .. "OMG the encryption is rubbish", but that's not the actual threat that people want to mitigate.
