Just a very short comment on Signal discussions:

– Signal already stored encrypted data on their servers for a long time.
– Some people say the strength of the PIN is always "4 digits." This isn't true, you can set a long and strong password.
– Most other messengers (including "alternatives") store your data in cleartext on their servers and require setting passwords, too.

Besides, stay open-minded and don't create a toxic "us vs. them" mentality.

@infosechandbook but the PIN thing showed that signal is centralized and still in control of a single party that could do everything they want!

Its time for people to start using password managers, they are solution to these types of problems. Also opt out option is already in beta

@infosechandbook Couldn't agree more especially with the very last part of your post... @sirduck
