  2. Avoid spying FCM (former GCM, Google Cloud Messaging)

    Google's Firebase spying framework is in direct opposition to the interests of users who want security (security includes privacy).

    Chatsecure need's a message delivery system that respects users privacy.

  3. Integrate "Pretty Easy privacy"

    Pretty Easy privacy (PEP) is an Opensource Encrypting tool. At moment integrated into Enigmail (current development) and Outlook(Add-in). It encrypt Mails with PGP and it allow, if sender and receiver both use PEP, sending Message over GnuNet instead over Mail protocol.

    Allow to receive PEP encrypted emails without a configured E-Mail account.

  6. It would be great if users could change the master password which was set during install.

    After the installation, it's not possible to change it or turn it off.

  7. Barcode scanner required to import otr keys

    Why does secure IM app require me to install a barcode scanner that requires access to, among some others, my contacts? I would like to manually type password from keysync window to ChatSecure but there is no such option. Or am I missing something?

  9. Nice to have WhatsApp contacts onboard.

    Must still have my WhatsApp open for contacts that do not use ChatSecure. It is difficult to get them to change but it would be nice if ou could chat to them and then get them to change when they can not open encrypted message.

  10. Enlarge chat font size, please

    Please enlarge chat font size or add option to enlarge it. Because default font is too small and I can´t read it.
    Thank you very much.

  12. Explain why permissions are required in Play store description

    I believe there's a bug/known issue in the compiler that requires identity. But this permission request seems strange for a secure chat app.

  13. Github AND Bugtracker?

    I don't quite understand why there is Github and Bugtracker for CS support. Wouldn't it be better to disable one, so that all questions and bug reports are in just one place?

  14. "About" menu

    almost all apps and software have a "about" menu item with the app version number and some further information / links about the app.
    I know that I can also go to F-Droid or Google Play Store to find some further info, but the "about" menu item would make it easier for the user and it's standard in all apps.

  16. how to open a transferred file?

    Receiving a text, jpg, or other formats files, we can see just a vfs: path.
    In fact I nether know hi to open that.
    Could be great if just touching the balloon CS to offer the possibilitie of decrypt and leave the open file on a path or open using default app for these files.
    Nowadays, touching the message balloon, with the vfs: path nothing happens.

  17. What does activate keysync mean?

    I don't really understand what the option "activate keysync" means. It appears in the context menu of every conversation. Can anyone explain?
