Re: Trapped

The thing that makes telegram win for me, is that it doesn't require a smartphone, just a mobile able to receive texts.

Signal and Viber need a master smartphone installation, and whatsapp requires that and the phone running.

I'm more worried about the trustworthiness of facebook, rather than the encryption potentially being weaker.
