Signal app endorsed by Elon Musk. A WhatsApp similar platform.

Woke up this afternoon and started taking in this guy and his talk about tesla and it's move towards HVAC and something involving water.

Water being my major and HVAC being my minor, coincidentally I mucked up a design while at the hospital oblivious of this guy's intentions.

Nothing disclosed about his and nothing on Google pertaining to mines. No patents, nothing.

Saw he endorsed this app and downloaded it. Just sharing like link hurr.

Let's switch to Signal: https://signal.org/install

You guys can check it out.

Yeah I see an "article" on one of them local papers site saying "Just click OK" and how "you have nothing to worry about."

I mention Signal/Telegramx back in the 'facebook hymc' thread.
Seeing plenty forin articles saying how many people going to switch to Signal or other non-whatsapp.

I always like TelegramX more than the regular and they said it would always be ad-free, but recently they mention something about ads.

Whatsapp have real local pests so I hope not too many come across and stink up that app and Signal.

Signal has been around a while now, supposed to have stronger encryption which govt agencies have no access to.
They had less features than WhatsApp but seems to be quite improved now.

Also Instagram's latest update allow you to chat with ppl on FB with no need for the messenger app.

^That's all it is really... Why would they buy WhatsApp for over 20 billion if not for profit somehow
