I want to setup a matrix instance to help increase friends and family’s privacy. Is there much value in creating my own instance?

I’m a beginner to linux and coding, but am good at following the steps on a video tutorial.

Alternatively i could get everyone to sign up on a preexisting instance + download the element app.

Thanks for sharing your opinions !

    This is exactly the conclusion I came to from reading your comments here and researching some more. I dropped matrix, and chose to go ahead with XMPP. Works great & very little overhead, even on the cheapest of servers.
