Why everyone should be using Signal instead of WhatsApp | WIRED UK

@michal Signal is maybe a teeny bit better than WhatsApp because you can see the source. But it's not on #fdroid anyway, so no guarantee your play store version is actually the same source. Moxie has been aggressive to others distributing signal too. "4. You can run your own Signal server" not really, it doesn't federate to users on Moxie's server. And since when are disappearing messages a "security feature" ? They're on someone else's server, no deletion guarantees.
@nezhac very good points but I still think it's the best choice esp. for non technical users.
