RIGHT!!! Riot has turned on End-to-End Encryption by default for all private conversations, and Cross-Signing device verification has landed and is live (and 🤞 performant!) 🎉🎉🎉 Huge amounts of work went into this: https://matrix.org/blog/2020/05/06/cross-signing-and-end-to-end-encryption-by-default-is-here has the overview.
@matrix great! 🎉
Hope a non-browser desktop client will follow this lead. :-)
@syster suspect both weechat & gomuks should be well positioned to enable e2ee by default too now :)
rain on parade
Just in time for congress to ban encryption 😥
@matrix congrats that's impressive and an amazing step forwards for your project. Huzzah!
What is this cross-signing thing?
@matrix Is it intended behaviour that on my smartphone the smartphone session itself is marked by a red shield? I already completed the upgrade on my desktop client (macos) only having those 2 sessions. On my smartphone in settings -> security i still see "complete security" but clicking there i see a dialog labelled "complete security" telling me about different client options and the only choice i have is "cancel"
@markus sounds like a bug - please can you submit a bug report from within the app and ideally a github issue walking through which setup flow you used? thanks for reporting it.
@matrix Nah, i just updated iOS app to 0.11.4 (from 0.11.2) and the issue is gone without any further intervention. Thx!
@markus yay :)
@matrix Congrats, Matrix team! Things work perfectly nice, also between different instances 👍
Congratulations to all developers. Really great achievement!
