Matrix / Element or XMPP.

XMPP is always the answer, stable, easy to host, many clients and you can stick with some non-paid servers if you need.

You are using Briar. If you find privacy very important then Briar is a very good choice. Signal is not such a great choice, see for example here : https://lemmy.ml/post/55595 And there is more against Signal : https://lemmy.ml/search/q/signal/type/All/sort/TopAll/page/1

it depends on who you are trying to share messages with and what works between you and them. if you are on Android, i would check the fdroid store.

If you want to do it without the metadata leaking, maybe use element through tor, that’s basically the best case for matrix right now. What about jami and the alternative? As long as it’s not peer to peer, I don’t think it really matters, your metadata will definitely leak. Maybe session could be the answer but it’s still relatively young and need to mature a bit more.

Threema costs about 4€ and works without a phone number. It’s currently not open source but they are planning to go open source. They’re based in Switzerland. I don’t know enough about meta data leaking but at least they’re aware of it.

Just checking : https://threema.ch/en/faq/source_code Yes, to ensure full transparency, the Threema apps are open source. Thanks to reproducible builds, there’s also a way to verify that the published code (of the Android app, for the time being) actually corresponds to the apps available for download in the app stores.

Oh that’s good. Last time I remembered/checked they weren’t but good that they’re now.

I really like Olvid project. According to their FAQ, they’re planning to become Open-Source before the end of the year.
