@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasAlso you still google microsoft and yahoo critical metadata like who you are communicating with, which is sometimes literally more important than the content of the message lol 10:50:58
@appleseed21:matrix.orgappleseed21I don’t leave the keys to my front door on the mat. They are separate. My point is with Proton the lock and the keys are in the same place… with proton.10:51:25
@appleseed21:matrix.orgappleseed21I don’t use those services, I was just making a point about encryption in general.10:52:03
@appleseed21:matrix.orgappleseed21* I don’t use those services, I was just making a point about encryption in general.10:52:20
@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasI'm really not sure if you are trolling or just don't understand the use case, attack vectors and protocol or that you can use the bridge or mobile apps.10:53:07
@appleseed21:matrix.orgappleseed21You make a good point about The Who you email vs the email. That is a different security topic and I agree with you.10:53:35
@appleseed21:matrix.orgappleseed21I am just saying that I don’t think the way proton implements security is really as secure as people think.10:55:04
@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasIt is, the problem lies in the architecture on the web not the implementation10:56:01
@appleseed21:matrix.orgappleseed21Sure10:56:13
@appleseed21:matrix.orgappleseed21Agreed.10:56:18
@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasbesides the fact that they can still extract incoming, unencrypted mail which is the prime use case for protonmail and similar services but that problem too lies in the architecture of the underlying protocols 10:56:46

I think Proton is a good solution over Gmail, but people should know if a government really wants your email, they most likely will get it. If you are in China, don’t fully rely on Proton. I might make the same case for the US that uses secret courts.

@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasbtw acting maliciously is not in the interest of protonmail unless they are a honeypot run by a gov so I don't think they will actively modify the code to extract keys unless the are required to do so, problem with these things is it's detectable 11:02:54

You make a good point.

@n1kl4s:mozilla.orgNiklasGoverments will just hack your device if they have to and sadly it becomes more common It's almost impossible to have really secure convenient communication 11:04:46

This is true. Don’t have to beat the encryption if you’re on the device.

doesn't mean they won't try to get data from providers but still, it's a thing for stuff like whatsapp
