Well, very nice to see such guides, but... Can someone guarantee that video calls in the desktop version are more secured than mobile ones? That is, everything is bugged, recorded and stored on servers that any schoolchild can hack? Why do people keep using these apps when there are safer alternatives like Utopia p2p ?
