Telegram has been putting up an impressive fight against the governments of Russia and Iran in high-profile efforts to censor the messaging service over the last few weeks. But we've heard little about its fellow encrypted messaging app Signal. Both services have used an anti-censorship technique called "domain fronting" to get around tyrants - and now, Google and Amazon say that's no longer an option.
In July, Wickr announced that its paying users could make encrypted conference calls. For a company prioritising businesses over consumers, this was a crucial development. But it also helped Wickr stand out from other secure messaging apps like Signal and WhatsApp, which have yet to roll out encrypted group calls. And on Friday, Wickr made the feature available to all its users.
If you want total privacy, Signal is generally understood to be the best messaging app around. But that doesn't mean it offers total privacy. Its developers are still working on improvements. And the latest tweak uses a controversial new feature in Intel processors to prove to that Signal isn't storing your contact info.
