I'm pretty sure there are no FOSS alternatives.
Therefore, which is the least bad?

At the moment, Signal seems to be the best choice.
Am I wrong? What should I use to no appear like a complete asocial?

Anything that runs on a SmartPhoneâ„¢ is compromised anyway.

Absolutely. But I still don't want to make (((Zuckerberg))) any richer, to be honest.

Maybe... but the ports for Android are still too glitched and on alpha...

Signal is quite good. It's not perfect but it's a huge improvement over whatsapp in terms of privacy, and in my experience its usable enough to get normie friends to use it.

If you absolutely need wifi and dont want to use another device, get a dongle.

There's no Gapps on my phone, Tardo. Just admit that you don't know what the fuck you're talking about. Everyone else already knows.

No thanks, I guess I'll keep the botnet in my pocket for a while...

See Signal thread: Tell me you want to use software developed and maintained by someone who's obviously a plant.

I'm pretty sure there are no FOSS alternatives.
I'm pretty sure people have been using end to end crypto on the internet for up to 4 decades now.
What should I use to no appear like a complete asocial?
suicide

How about wire? It's recommended on privacytols.io page. It seems to collect more data though?

Carson Gutierrez

Wire is certainly one of the less-awful options. It's not made by an advertising company, it's made by a non-US company (and thus is out of NSL range), it's easy on battery life, has proper end-to-end encryption where the keys stay on the end devices, has an open source client and soon to be open souce server, has official direct APK download for us gapps-less-ROM folks who don't want to compile our own for whatever reason, there's no phone# needed, and it runs on all the mainstream desktop and mobile OSs.

It's not perfect, but out of all the normie-friendly chat apps, it's the one I point friends and family towards. I just tell them "It's sorta like skype, except that it works well". It helps that it's dead simple to use.

If I'm not mistaken, Stallman uses it himself when he has to do video-chat interviews.

how bad is telegram?
i remember there being some fuss about their encryption method a few years ago and that someone from the company responded. i also remember the company being russian or something.
