Signal, one of the most secure messaging apps, essentially told Australia this week that its attempts to thwart strong crypto are rather cute.

"By design, Signal does not have a record of your contacts, social graph, conversation list, location, user avatar, user profile name, group memberships, group titles, or group avatars," Joshua Lund, a Signal developer wrote. "The end-to-end encrypted contents of every message and voice/video call are protected by keys that are entirely inaccessible to us. In most cases now we don’t even have access to who is messaging whom."

It is really not helpful if a #messenger just tells "Could not send message" and you have to manually press retry till it does. How about you implement A FUCKING RETRY DURATION THAT IS ACCEPTABLE LONG? Give the user a feedback after a longer time (10 minutes) and ask if the user still wants to send the message, also give the users an option to cancel the sending. Why is is so hard to make it usable? #Signal #Skype

Will the anti-terrorist Regulation destroy Signal, Telegram and ProtonMail? Analysis of the text makes us fear that it will impose mass surveillance and automated censorship to messaging services offering end-to-end encryption.

New Signal Messenger privacy feature removes sender ID from metadata


Plenty of messaging apps use strong encryption to make it next to impossible for law enforcement officers or other potential adversaries to read communications sent between parties. Often, however, unencrypted metadata—such as the sender, receiver, and time a message is sent—is all the sensitive data an adversary needs. Now, the Signal app is testing a new technique called "sealed sender" that's designed to minimize the metadata that's accessible to its servers.

A beta release announced Monday will send messages that remove most of the plain-text sender information from message headers. It's as if the Signal app was sending a traditional letter through the postal service that still included the "to" address but has left almost all of the "from" address blank.

Users who want to receive sealed-sender messages from non-contacts can choose an optional setting that doesn't require the sender to present a delivery token. This setting opens a user up to the possibility of increased abu... show more
 
If Whatsapp and Conversations was having 1-2% of the battery drain, #Signal got ca. 20%
I may need to investigate this. I think I tested Telegram but disliked some aspects.

Signal's :signal: new "sealed sender" feature:

https://signal.org/blog/sealed-sender/

– the goal is to conceal the sender of messages from Signal servers
– this removes Signal's ability to verify authenticity of senders. Therefore, they're introducing a new client-side certificate system
– currently in beta testing

5 messaging apps to use when WhatsApp starts showing advertising


WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application in South Africa, but it is also owned by Facebook, a fact that has prompted some users concerned about their privacy to turn to other messaging apps.

There have also been reports that WhatsApp will start showing advertising to users, making it less appealing.

The close relationship between the two platforms and analytical data collected from WhatsApp have alerted many users to potential privacy concerns, and with other apps offering truly private messaging, concerned users have turned to other options for their private conversations.

If your friends are using say three of these networks, not to worry, as most phones will allow you to easily operate multiple messaging platforms simultaneously. In that way you should still stay in contact with everyone. South Africans should also remember they also have Moya Messenger which is zero-rated data within South Africa.

SVZ: Wegen wachsender Bedrohung: Verfassungsschutz will verschlüsselte Messengerdienste überwachen


Signal, Threema oder Telegram: Der Verfassungsschutz muss in der Lage sein, auch verschlüsselte Botschaften mitzulesen.

Der Verfassungsschutz muss nach Ansicht von Torsten Voß, dem Leiter des Hamburger Landesamtes, in der Lage sein, auch verschlüsselte Botschaften über Messengerdienste mitzulesen. "Die Nachrichtendienste müssen rechtlich und technisch die Möglichkeit haben, Extremisten immer zu überwachen", sagte Voß der in Bonn erscheinenden Monatszeitung "Behörden Spiegel" (Dienstag). Das sei momentan nicht durchgängig der Fall. Voß leitet zurzeit auch den Verfassungsschutz-Arbeitskreis der Innenministerkonferenz...

Prima Sache das mit dem Musterbrie. Da muss ich als Mustermann ja noch meine Self zu geben. ;-))))

Was WahtsApp Alernatieven angeht würde ich meinen, dass #Rito noch mal besser ist als #signal

aber wir haben uns auf dem #Elternabend zu einer schnöden #Mailingliste entschlossen.

Sowas hat den Vorteil, das jeder der ne Mailadresse hat und sich mit Mails auskennt (ja mitlerweile fast jeder) nicht ein neues System lernen muss.

Es gibt Anbieter wie 1&1 die das anbieten.

Eine Mailingliste kann man auch selber mit #MAILMAN betreiben.

Wir machen es nun mit einem #Joomla / #WordPress Plugin ( #Mailister ) aus einem CMS heraus.

Any #Signal user on #iOS / #Apple here?

I got one person that told me that pictures I send are not shown immediately but have to be tapped to open. Also text send with the pictures is not shown and therefor lost on the iOS end. Any idea? I tried searching for this but it didn't bring any helpful info.

Ich lese in dem Artikel nicht, dass Openbook föderal wäre. Nur der Code ist halt offen, aber das kann auch heißen, dass es eine große Plattform gibt und wer will kann sich daneben eine eigene Aufsetzen, die haben dann aber nichts miteinander zu tun.
So ein bisschen wie #signal.

Wenn es föderal ist heiße ich es auch gerne in der Familie willkommen. Und die Idee mit der Währung hatte ich auch schonmal, ich weiß nur nicht wie man die Geldschöpfung regelt. Derzeit geht das imho nur zentral oder blockchain.
