@chr if privacy is an concern, consider an OTR encryption or PGP over any messaging platform.

@chr If privacy is a concern, I would suggest looking into protocols like Matrix matrix.org/blog/home/

@chr More importantly remember to use the proper tools for each purpose.

Mastodon and activitypub were designed as a federated publication platform, not a communication system (these use cases are very difficult to reconcile), and thus lack some of the essentials of a proper communication tool, including end to end encryption.

Other tools are better suited for distributed/federated communication, including email, XMPP/Jabber, Matrix, or even Ring and some others.

@chr I guess my main message is: #mastodon (or any activitypub/fediverse service) is not especially bad at privacy. As a publication tool it is even pretty good at #privacy because your connection, search, and consultation data will only be stored by your instance.

It is indeed bad at properly securing your private communication, but hey! It was not meant for having private communications in the first place.

@chr it's also possible for other instances to get access to private messages due to how the federation stuff works. mastodon is great but don't use it for anything that needs to stay private!

@FakeRobotGamer i thought this was fixed by stopping to send dms over ostatus?

@MightyPork if that was done i don't know? but probably a good idea. still, any server admin involved can see them.

lol that isn’t true of other social media and other systems for DMs had been suggested for months here that were already supported by the h spec by the time the mentioned-only privacy level masto passes off as DMs rolled out.
