Recently British newspaper The Guardian have revealed that Whisper Systems are tracking it’s users even thought they’ve requested not to be.
While I don’t think this necissarily applies to TextSecure I believe this should be taken into consideration if F-Droid are considering distributing binaries.October 26, 2014 at 8:36 pm #13099
Whisper and Open WhisperSystems are wholly unrelated entities.
The company that make the Whisper app were the ones implicated, Open WhisperSystems was not involved at all.October 28, 2014 at 5:39 pm #13118
OK, guys. If you look at my posts in this thread, you will know that I have been heavily criticizing Textsecure/Whisper System/Moxie for going with proprietary Google and removing security features, such as the ability of the user to generate a new key. However, WhisperText LLC out of California has nothing to do with Whisper System that does Textsecure. Those are totally different entities.October 29, 2014 at 11:20 pm #13127
Sorry!October 30, 2014 at 2:00 pm #13129

thank you for your effort! i have testet the websocket version for the last week and my only concern is battery usage. This version of TextSecure seems to be responsible for 50% battery loss in about 6 hours whithout doing anything over night. I see many bam_dmux_wakelocks which are connected to network access. also in comparison to whatsapp this version of textsecure has more than double as many wakelocks as whatsapp.
Just wanted to report my experince. Still thank you!November 8, 2014 at 9:50 am #13303

@zikalify: Would love to, but moxie specifically asked me not to distribute binaries, sorry.December 28, 2014 at 4:33 pm #13910
I’m new to F-Droid and REALLY would love to see TextSecure on this platform. As I didn’t read the whole thread, just two quick questions:
1.) Are there any news regarding the current status?
2.) Could the issues, which prevented TextSecure from being available on F-Droid, be resolved?January 6, 2015 at 8:41 pm #14063
It’s not that simple, basically refer to my posting in https://f-droid.org/forums/topic/redphone-and-textsecure/January 13, 2015 at 12:36 am #14142
A little update on Textsecure:
There was a major vulnerability found last October-November. And Moxie’s response (not surprisingly) – fixing “feels pretty cumbersome” and “I dunno.”
Also, Open Whisper System is now accepted into the family of such a bastion of privacy, as Facebook (kids love it, NSA approves). So, if you had any doubt about this app before, now you can sleep well at night (sarcasm).

TextSecure is a messaging app for simple private communication with friends.
TextSecure uses your phone’s data connection (WiFi/3G/4G) to communicate securely, optionally supports plain SMS/MMS to function as a unified messenger, and can also encrypt the stored messages on your phone.
Currently available on the Play store.
