I don’t like publishing my phone no. I consider it a stupid idea. Good old days where we can chat using our email ID.
mvp Agree. However (for the moment at least) it’s the only way you get get Signal to verify. I personally use Signal, and trust it way more than WhatsApp for example.
That is why I would love have the old Google Chat.
