one of the biggest challenges is not you (general "you" here for us techies), the techie, privacy-oriented guru. It is your family, relatives, friends, people you need communications with and all they know is how to turn on their iPhones.
I know I'm not bringing up anything new here, but I think we need to keep remembering to focus on this... somehow.
@jrss @briar You are absolutely right. It's why, despite the legit flaws people point out, I still suggest #Signal to people. Unlike #Matrix/#Element, there is no un-encrypted mode. It has secured voice and video calls. Elon Musk aside, it is reliable and works where people expect it to.
I'm excited about possibilities of these systems. None of them are ready to knock off Signal yet, but there is plenty of room for them to grow in that direction in the future.
