Still confused why seems to be the main alternative promoted in the current thing 🤷🏼‍♂️

What about ?

- Now completely open source
- Proven security
- Independent from phone number (!)

Is it still that people refuse to pay some cents (!) for an app? That‘d be rediculous 🤦🏼‍♂️

@Nico
I used threema a few years ago, it was very buggy back then. So I switched to signal then, and sticking with it.

Now I assume threema is less buggy now, but I have no need to go back to another app

@sexybiggetje I‘m in the other boat 😁

Meanwhile Threema works flawlessly 🙂

@Nico Threema is not completely open source. Only the apps are. Server infrastructure is still closed source.

@OK_OK Sorry, you‘re right.

Nevertheless, even an untrusted infrastructure should not be a problem for end-to-end encryption.

@Nico I guess Threema just is not very well known outside German-speaking countries.

@Nico I use both Signal and Threema. The fact that Signal is free certainly has helped it to achieve much wider adoption than Threema.

@Nico
And even if they refuse, you can bribe them by giving them licenses for free. Like: "try it out, I'll help you".
Of course, how easy that is can differ, depending on wether you/your friends use Android or iOS.
