whatsapp / signal / telegram ?
Unless it is dealing with my money or card payments, I have never really been that concerned about message security.
Always thought if it is "online" it is like talking to a mate in a crowded pub.
That attitude changed a bit when we got an amazon alexa.
Tmelines started featuring adverts for things that had been mentioned in conversation.. spooky !
Do the advantages outweigh the lack of privacy ?
To be honest, I am still trying to start my list of Alexa advantages
Going back to my original thought train..... So I looked at a few alternatives, I always liked whatsapp, but I think now that it is in the facebook group it has lost a bit of its shine.
I looked at Briar which seemed good and Jami which seems too good to be true.
The downside of all these is, I know 4 people on signal, 9 on telegram
All the others are staying with their mates on whatsapp or messenger.
May go back to talking to myself.
