    nicola, the thing is that Signal still needs the phone number, usernames are only presented to other users

Good to know. Yes, it is still centralized, needs a number, ... But it is good to know those things when explaining XMPP advantages to other people. Thanks, nicola.

    @Axel, you are welcome. Yesterday, I read a tweet with an exciting thanks to Signal, but maybe that person didnโ€™t realize the concrete news meaning. I think itโ€™s crucial to raise awareness among people on those points. No personal data - data minimization.

    I just wanted to add that thanks to XMPP I deleted Signal from my phone and ( the incredibly over hyped) Element ( Matrix client ) ๐Ÿค—๏ธ

    And also uninstalled Signal from my wife and my mom's phone and moved them to XMPP ๐Ÿ˜๏ธ
