My opinion is: is the best we have!
Let's criticize what is shitty but also acknowledge what it has archived. There is no sense in telling people that is no better than or something like that. Signal is constantly improving and I wouldn't know how to do better.

@heimdall I my opinion #Threema is a far better approach. A crypto messenger based on phone numbers cannot be really privacy friendly. And Intel SGX doesn't look like a good security concept to base a messenger on.

But even Threema isn't open source, so neither choice is really good.


@ls Signal tries to become independent of phone numbers, the PIN is a first step. I also want to point out, that the pin can be longer than 4 characters, so you don't have to depend on Intel SGX
