    Never heard of it. Website doesn't seem convincing. "Worlds most secure messenger" is in itself already a red flag, there don't seem to be any details on encryption and threat model on their website and it seems closed source. Plus the website itself still supports TLS 1.0..

    Yes, imho Signal and Element/Matrix are currently the best out there.
