Go switch to Signal.

yeah, I'll wait.

You aren't in danger today, but someone you know will be prolly within the next 2-4 months, and using Signal could *literally* save their life.

Plus, you can send extra big gifs to your contacts, and it has encrypted calling.

Seriously, stop waffling and go switch, it will import your texts and nothing changes for your non-Signal contacts.

Using Signal could have saved the lives of some of my LGBTQ/kinky/furry/etc friend's lives in 2016-2017.

Please go download it once you finish reading that.

If you need Signal to stay safe, you need the person on the other end of the connection to be safe for you to contact.

This is not about you...!

This is about keeping everyone you and I and everyone else cares about safe from modern threats to their lives.

Inoculate this cause of death.

That's how we win.

@eryn although I suspect its not perfect security wise (nothing is) because of the dependence on a centralised server (but I genuinely believe Signal does *not* hoard data nor telephone numbers as phone numbers often belong to countries govts and there are rules about their use by third parties it also has the advantage in many countries that if you send even a cat pic to your friend over MMS it can cost €0,50 on your phone bill, whereas LTE data charges are way less or included in bundles. 1/2
