Well what I liked about signal was the ability to set a password for App access and an on-device encrypted database to protect any SMS messages sitting on the device from snooping if I lost my phone or having an interaction with the authorities as you can’t be forced to give up a password (as opposed to fingerprint, in the US).
I never really have any encrypted E2E messages. Just used it for on-device security reasons
No one should, but sooooo many Americans are. I don’t have a single person using Silence for E2E messages. Nor did I really have any friends using signal, either. But for myself I was looking for on device encryption and password protected app usage. I wish I had friends using either… But they all have iPhones and use iMessage.
Well what I liked about signal was the locked access and encrypted database to protect any on-device SMS messages from snooping if I lost my phone or having an interaction with the authorities as you can’t be forced to give up a password (as opposed to finger print).
So I looked for a fork of signal and found ***Silence on F-Droid. ** *
It has both those features. Again, I’m not using it to encrypt messages E2E… I’m looking at on device security
You’re right. Even packet radio can’t contain encrypted packets.
The reason:. The citizens own the bands. Can’t block other citizens from the information.
