I started looking into #XMPP clients with end-to-end-encryption support. First one was #Gajim, with its "charming" 90s messenger style. Encryption isn't the default here however, no progress on the corresponding issue. https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim-plugins/-/issues/319
@WPalant too bad, #Riot uses a bit too much battery on phones I tested it on -- granted they were #fdroid flavour. I still have it on my phone, mainly to connect to #Freenode
(irony aside), but with every bit of autosync disabled when the app is not in the foreground.
I prefer the usage and look'n'feel of Conversations for family chatting

@jiefk Yes, so far Riot still shows most potential despite the shortcomings. And I'm explicitly not saying "Matrix" because as of now there is no real selection of usable and secure clients.
Will continue looking but I have little hope to still find a good Signal replacement.
