Better try the original first. If register a XMPP account and set up is to complicated for you, then try !

@tuxicoman Anti-Features:
* NonFreeNet - you can't change the server where the accounts are created
* Tracking - uses a 3rd party service provider (Twilio) to send SMS as needed for authentication

@tuxicoman btw those anti-features are the footnote from f-Droid app description * ( last paragraph) Signal sends either encrypted txt messages, if used with non Signal users will use the internet providers network

@ti_gj06 you can't migrate your account out of unique server. Moreover you can't talk to any other server.

You have a sms verification. I don't know which 3rd party service is used for that.

Signal is not provided on fdroid because Signal forbid it (won't allow to connect to their server and thus their users)

@tuxicoman i use Langis, Conversations ( just plain Xmpp ) Matrix or Briar, Jami don't require phone numbers..or Deltachat, Sessions
