Signal - cross-platform secure messaging (64-bit only)

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Signal has now adopted a cryptocurrency (with ties to Moxie Marlinspike, the Signal founder) for mobile payments: https://amycastor.com/2021/04/07/signal ... rlinspike/

This looks like a scheme to make money for Marlinspike: he most likely holds some MobileCoin reserves and they have now multiplied in price due to this announcement.

This looks highly shady. I recommend avoiding Signal from now on.

Better news for Signal (also for Telegram):
Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data reveals that mobile users flocked to alternatives led by Telegram and Signal following the announcement. In the first four months of 2021, Telegram’s installs climbed 98% year-over-year to more than 161 million, while Signal saw its first-time downloads surge 1,192% Y/Y to 64.6 million.
