Israeli espionage firm hacks WhatsApp. Can install spyware with missed call.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/may/13/whatsapp-urges-users-to-upgrade-after-discovering-spyware-vulnerability

My advice: dump WhatsApp today and start using Wire (https://wire.com/en/products/personal-secure-messenger/). Tell your friends and family to do the same. (It’s a simple, free download on all app stores. Easy to use, doesn’t require your phone number, and their business model is based on charging for commercial use and for pro accounts.)

#WhatsApp
 
My dream is to use only one foss and decentralized messenger for everything. With @matrix this seems possible now.
I'm currently chatting with people on:

#Matrix
#Telegram
#XMPP
#IRC
#WhatsApp

and I'm using only FluffyChat. Not everything is working 100% fine and there is still a lot of work to do. That's why I'm still using Telegram on my phone too.

What I would like to have:
-WhatsApp bridge without the need of an extra device
-XMPP&Telegram direct chats
-SMS bridge

Traurige Zeiten

Nette Zufallsbekanntschaft:
"Wir sollten in Kontakt bleiben."
Ich: "Hast Du vielleicht #Facebook oder #WhatsApp?"
NZ (freudestrahlend): "Beides!"
Ich: "Dann kann ich Dir leider weder Telefonnummer noch Emailadresse geben."

@matrix I've been quite critical of #matrix for some of its choices and for all it's bluster against #xmpp (some merited, some overblown, and some equally applicable to matrix today...), but I still think it's worth encouraging it--and any other secure foss messaging protocols--else we fall back on #whatsapp, #skype, #hangouts clusterfuck. From the other perspective: @matrix, you've made a lot of ambitious promises. I hope you don't let us down.
