Session (Signal fork that doesn’t require mobile number) is also worth mentioning…


so how does that work then?

The app generates a unique session ID for you which you can share with people in order to add new contacts. No need to reveal your email address or mobile number in order to create/verify or authenticate your account. It operates using Loki’s (ZeroNet fork) Tor network. You can read more about Loki here…
