    Open source doesn’t necessarily give you the freedoms the free software gives. Open source just means you can use the source code. Free software means it grants you the 4 freedoms and respects your ability to modify and distribute the code.

    My problem with signal is they discourage forking and modifying the source or using modified versions of the code. I assume this is one of the reasons they don’t have signal on F-droid.

    Also F-droid allows you to get your programs from any repo. It is up to you not to add bad repos. Molly has a lot of encouraging things about it that make it more trustworthy for me. The main thing I like is there fully Foss version.
