I know finding the right messenger for /e/OS is a big one
I`ve read a number of posts about various messengers, signal riot, threema, wire etc and feel /e/foundation needs to get Jami working with the /e/os as so far it doesnt work on e/os which is a shame.
Signal like most requires a telephone number which is the i feel is a privacy violation. isnt the ultimate tracker your telephone number in some ways?
Wire messenger according to wikipedia says:
Riot looks ok but according to this chart someone posted on the forum it doesnt secure mesages and attachments.
Threema is not open source
Jami in my opinion and research seems to be the best one, its 100% open source,
Jami is completely peer-to-peer and doesn’t require a server for relaying data between users.
end-to-end encryption with perfect forward secrecy for all communications and comply with the X.509 standard.
No restriction on file sizes and most importantly doesnt require a telephone number.
To me its a no brainer + if i could get jami to work i could talk to my brother on his stupid iphone:) (i got him to install it but had no success in mesaging him via /e/OS)
Can we please get Jami working with /e/ i really feel its important. maybe /e/ could strike up a friendly relationship and message Jami send them some free phones or something, dont know why the /e/OS refuses to run it.
I`m sure many have various opinions and preferences on their favorite messengers , i not trying to get anyone to switch just would like to see Jami working and feel /e.foundation should do their best for anyone to try this app.
