I’m trying to use element on manjaro linux and syphon on an android phone. I’m logged in with manjaro and when I log in from the phone I get a “verify your device” popup. When I click on verify it says “Verify other device To proceed, please accept the verification request on your other device.” But I don’t see anything on syphon. I can’t read private chats because all messages appear as encrypted. I can read group chats though. So what can I do to read private chats from syphon?

Cross signing for Syphon is apparantly still in development (see the issue and PR).

So for now you might have to try a different client for your phone (such as Element/SchildiChat or FluffyChat).

Edit: Nvm, didn’t see the solved in the title ^^’ you might want to add your solution then? (:

You can also verify with a security key, I do not remember exactly where you got it but I think it was upon signin up and/or in the settings, I find it a lot more useful when signin in on a new device.
