Did I read this right? Signal uploads your contacts to their servers after you set a PIN? Possible to opt out of that?

@rosano I'd like to see a link to something more authoritative. One toot doesn't make it so.

@bartleby I believe this is one of the developers talking about it, but I'm not sure to what extent it gets uploaded, I don't understand the technical aspect yet

@rosano Yes, Moxie is the main guy. People whined because Signal was associated with your phone number, now he's attempting to change that and people are looking for something new to whine about. The best security engineers in the world say Signal is the way to go with no caveats. I'll take that over some rando rant.
