@kura @frommMoritz @Kajo I see no reason to be in a WhatsApp group with my landlord. Usually, they write letters with announcements. And the flatmates can give a call if they need a piece of butter and 4 eggs for the evening. ;)
Bonus: "switch" means: go to play store and install Signal. Should not be too hard. He did it with WhatsApp and probably downloaded other apps too.
Since the beginning of the thread, you seem to be somebody who searches for problems, not solutions. If you simply try to convince them, you have a chance to succeed. You decided to go the convenient path (stick with the status quo) and not discuss with them. Ok.

@frommMoritz Never used it.
@frommMoritz I cannot, as I have no access to their servers.
And my Siemens phone won't install it to remove it directly afterwards.
@frommMoritz I did it 5 years ago 😉
@frommMoritz I convinced my mother to install Signal today. She doesn't grasp the concept of data protection at all. So I offered her something different. I disabled the read indicator (blue checkmarks) in WhatsApp and she started complaining about it. I told her to install Signal because I have the read indicator enabled there. It's all about offering the right things to the right people.
@frommMoritz has i done many years ago
