During these times when the #privacy-invading practices of #WhatsApp are brought into light, it might be good to check back again with #DeltaChat:


I had only checked them back when they were just getting started, and encryption was still in the works. Today, encryption is built-in using #autocrypt and they offer even clients for the desktop.

Has anyone tried it?


@kzimmermann tried it a few months ago and I've been an advocate ever since 🤩

@michal awesome! How's autocrypt by the way? Can you use it when talking to an email client that supports PGP like? (I assume that raw messages that are exchanged are no more different than a PGP ASCII-armored message, but I haven't read the standard)

@kzimmermann perhaps, I haven't dug that deep into specs. But when both parties use Delta the experience is flawless.
