    I have been a financial consultant for 8 years but if someone had pointed me towards a platform as reliable as bitcoinsamurai, I would have talked them down. The information eluded me for months and I was glad when I caught up with it. I couldn't believe Elaine(my best friend since college) kept it away from me after she found out. I am so pissed at her but more grateful for the fact that she did.

    _"... cannot view the content of the messages you're sending, thanks to encryption."_ It's proprietary. So they can do anything they want. They control the code, even when it's on your device. If they need to disable the encryption on a particular device, they will. And the only way to prevent them is to disconnect from the internet.

    Nothing is Ever Private or kept secret. As long it is on the internet or anything associated with it, it no more secret. The Term - Secret' was just a decoy to get hard information from individual. The only sercet is keeping it to yourself, that is why it is called secret. I dont trust any of this techkies and their agenda. It a shame we humans are so easy to buy. Always thinks everything is free when its not at all. Free Will Is Not Free. . .Its All Illusion.

    The reason I have not gone to Signal is because the little H i t l e r at Twitter, @jack, has promoted signal more often than Elon has and it is his competition! Jack Dorsey is even featured on their homepage! That makes me very nervous... is Twitter just a mass psyop and his real product is Signal?

    When I see Edward Snowden recommend signal I get suspicious. When Elon musk recommends it I think hmmm if too many key players at the top recommend it that means their is likely something wrong and sends me red flags stay away from signal. If the large companies try to take signal down then I am interested in it because that means it works.
