    Rule 1: Posts to r/signal must relate to Signal. MobileCoin is a separate company and posts about it generally belong on r/mobilecoin, just like posts about GIPHY belong on r/giphy.

    What they've not addressed: - Moxie's involvement with MobileCoin. - The concerns about regulatory risks/attention involved with a cryptocurrency integration. - Why it involved hiding the server source code. - Who owns these >50% MobileCoins at "buymobilecoin.com". - How crypto isn't a power-user feature [Signal is notably anti-power-user].

    You just ignore the META-INF/CERTIFIC.* files containing signing info and compare the other JAR contents (classes.dex, etc.). They have guide on how to do Signal Android reproducible builds which does the comparison for you in a Python script: https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Android/tree/master/reproducible-builds
  • Fake Signal Website?
    reddit.com/r/signal | 2021-04-13
    This site came up when I Googled for Signal for desktop. Stupidly and in a hurry, I downloaded and opened the file, which turned out to be an ISO holding an EXE. There was an error installing the EXE, which is when I finally paid attention to what I was doing and searched harder to find the legit Signal site, https://signal.org/
