If I’m not mistaken, the devs backpedaled after user backlash, and made the PIN feature optional.

From the article: “Eventually, users can get rid of phone connection during logging in. That’s certainly a good point.”

Sure seems like people are going to removed no matter what Signal does. First, they cry about having to use a phone number. Now they cry because Signal asks them to use a PIN. These guys can’t win, seemingly. Maybe someone could come up with a method that satisfies everyone and share it with the devs. Then, everybody wins!

Oh shit, that’s what it’s doing. I thought it was just added security for my phone. Damn it.
