Why is it that so many BHW Members use Skype in their day to day communications? It is not considered a very secure platform, and in my mind, which may be quite off here, of all people, BHW Members would be more security conscious than say, my grandmother (who has a Skype account). Beyond Open Whisper Systems' Signal app, which requires users share actual telephone numbers, there are much more secure options such as KeyBase. I have no ownership or am not part of the development teams for either of these products. I do, however, use them daily. I have even resorted to using ProtonMail to contact BHW Members, as it allows for end-to-end encrypted communications via e-mail, with a non-ProtonMail recipient, well, with everyone actually. This post may be more of a rhetorical rant than anything else. Maybe some of you will read this, do your own research, and start using more secure communications channels.
