Signal - exchange client applicationinstant messaging and internet telephony free and open source. The main focus of the development is on privacy and security.
Function of private messages (Direct Message, DM)is vulnerable. Their content may not be reviewed by Twitter staff to verify compliance with social network policies. Also, representatives of the social network openly declare that they can share information with law enforcement agencies or in response to government requests.
Perhaps Musk will suggest using a pass-throughencryption (end-to-end encryption, E2EE), notes Interesting Engineering. It ensures that no one, not even the platform itself, can read the contents of the messages. This will also come in handy if the account has been hacked. It is being implemented by tech companies around the world in an attempt to protect user privacy.
Musk is expected to make many changes tosocial media platform. He has already stated that he will take the company private after his acquisition and does not trust the current management. Given this, changing the encryption system may be one of the first.
