Re: Trapped

My security plan was this. Several years ago I installed Signal and established connections to some key acquaintances and with Signal’s most secure - timed msg erasure, only using their servers even if a tad slower, and switching off iOS “recent messages” (also installed Threema but that seldom used,) picked a good paid VPN with no logging in a jurisdiction far, far away, then a year ago dumped FB. After 6 months, reinstalled (never at anytime FB messager or Whatapp) limited strictly with all their restrictions switched on and my restrictions of 20 “friends” mostly distant and *sigh* network sloppy relatives with no other way they can be reached. Security hygiene is so important nowadays and many users are asleep at wheel and like it that way.
