If you're #xmpp #jabber enthusiast or developer, I'd like to inform you, that some @tails devs are thinking to remove xmpp ecosystem from being part of #Tails.

If you care about a user group that has a high demand for security, privacy and an UX that enables non-techies, I could help you to understand their needs.

The #XMPP server shuts down tomorrow.

Although we're now in the final hours, I've been working all week towards something to help. I've put up an initial version of a web-based XMPP account migrator at

It's rushed and still a bit rough round the edges right now, but I really hope it is useful to people who still have data and contacts to migrate before goes offline.

If you use it, let me know how it goes! 🙂

Hey guys,

here is the (unofficial) information that the server will be shut down soon.
It is anounced on

- a relocation of the server is impossible.

You can find a list of servers e.g. here:

Important: The app (formerly Pix-Art) is not affected!

Please share, because it seems there was/will be no server message!

@tuxedocomputers gerade euer USB-C Ladegerät gesehen. Werden künftige Tuxedos nur noch USB-C zum laden haben? Dann also auch ne zusätzliche USB-C Buchse. Das wäre echt cool
Diese Runde Buchse fand ich schon immer doof.

Video calls in Dino are slowly coming together. We are already making successful OMEMO encrypted video calls! The feature is included in our nightly builds now, but there's still further work to be done. #dino #xmpp

You'd like to use a modern chat application, while being under the full protection #Tails has to offer? (amnesia, anonymous, censorship resistant, encryption)

You might enjoy @dino then, one of Tails candidates to replace pidgin.
No phone number, anonymous, censorship resistant, e2e encrypted, decentralized/federated, easy to use, based on #xmpp.

With Tails "additional software" function you don't need to wait. Here's how to install it yourselve:

Weshalb Telegram kurioserweise eine Aura der Sicherheit umgibt, ist aus meiner Sicht nicht nachvollziehbar. Der Messenger ist keine sichere und datenschutzfreundliche Alternative zu WhatsApp.
