Use Signal.


This is the Vs Vs Vs metadata graphic from my article on ’s privacy labels…

This is your data and you’re entitled to ask why it’s being collected and processed.

@volt4ire @ParadeGrotesque Signal collects your phone number, though. That seems pretty identifiable to me?

On the other hand, the phone number is not kept and/or transmitted when sending a signal message, if I remember correctly.

Signal is not perfect, and this phone number information is definitely one of its weaknesses.

(But I would still choose Signal over WhatsApp any day)

@volt4ire Wouldn't it be better to recommend something decentralised like #Matrix rather than just another centralised chat company?

@volt4ire not available for Linux (Pinephone & Librem 5) yet :'(
