I recently installed #deltachat. Great concept!
- Use your own email address
- You can reach anybody having an email address
- #opensource
- #decentralised
- End-to-end encryption
- Serverless (for the app itself, not taking into account the ones used for the emails)
- Good design (similar to #Signal)

Signal Messenger Has A Clever New Way To Shield Your Identity - A "sealed sender" Feature

A key part of what makes Signal the leading encrypted messaging app is its effort to minimize the amount of data or metadata each message leaves behind. The messages themselves are fully encrypted as they move across Signal's infrastructure, and the service doesn't store logs of information like who sends messages to each other, or when. On Monday, the nonprofit that develops Signal announced a new initiative to take those protections even further. Now, it hopes to encrypt even information about which users are messaging each other on the platform.

"While the service always needs to know where a message should be delivered, ideally it shouldn’t need to know who the sender is," Moxie Marlinspike, the creator of Signal, wrote on Monday. "It would be better if the service could handle packages where only the destination is written on the outside, with a blank space where the 'from' address used to be."

@rugk @OpenSource

Yeah..That's y i have shifted from #Signal to #Pixart messenger with #OMEMO encryption recently 😀

But do anyone know how different is OMEMO vs Signal Protocol ?
 
@Tutanota @Qwant @Tutanota @fdroidorg @openstreetmap Nice to see another likeminded service like you there in the free world of Mastodon! I am currently using protonmail, how would you compare yourself to them? And what do you think about #signal, #matrix, #brave and #purism?
 
Signal, one of the most secure messaging apps, essentially told Australia this week that its attempts to thwart strong crypto are rather cute.

"By design, Signal does not have a record of your contacts, social graph, conversation list, location, user avatar, user profile name, group memberships, group titles, or group avatars," Joshua Lund, a Signal developer wrote. "The end-to-end encrypted contents of every message and voice/video call are protected by keys that are entirely inaccessible to us. In most cases now we don’t even have access to who is messaging whom."

New Signal Messenger privacy feature removes sender ID from metadata

Plenty of messaging apps use strong encryption to make it next to impossible for law enforcement officers or other potential adversaries to read communications sent between parties. Often, however, unencrypted metadata—such as the sender, receiver, and time a message is sent—is all the sensitive data an adversary needs. Now, the Signal app is testing a new technique called "sealed sender" that's designed to minimize the metadata that's accessible to its servers.

A beta release announced Monday will send messages that remove most of the plain-text sender information from message headers. It's as if the Signal app was sending a traditional letter through the postal service that still included the "to" address but has left almost all of the "from" address blank.

Users who want to receive sealed-sender messages from non-contacts can choose an optional setting that doesn't require the sender to present a delivery token. This setting opens a user up to the possibility of increased abuse, but for journalists or others who rely on Signal to communicate with stranger... show more

5 messaging apps to use when WhatsApp starts showing advertising

WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application in South Africa, but it is also owned by Facebook, a fact that has prompted some users concerned about their privacy to turn to other messaging apps.

There have also been reports that WhatsApp will start showing advertising to users, making it less appealing.

The close relationship between the two platforms and analytical data collected from WhatsApp have alerted many users to potential privacy concerns, and with other apps offering truly private messaging, concerned users have turned to other options for their private conversations.

If your friends are using say three of these networks, not to worry, as most phones will allow you to easily operate multiple messaging platforms simultaneously. In that way you should still stay in contact with everyone. South Africans should also remember they also have Moya Messenger which is zero-rated data within South Africa.
