I would like to use signal-desktop without having a smartphone to register.
In one of Micah Lee’s article (https://theintercept.com/2017/09/28/signal-tutorial-second-phone-number/), I see that I can use signal-cli (https://github.com/AsamK/signal-cli).
Even if I fully trust Micah, his article is a bit dated (September 28 2017).
Question 1: how can I be sure that signal-cli is (still) trustworthy?
Question 2: Isn’t it a bit funny that the package is not signed? Wouldn’t it be nice if the fingerprint of the key would be available on Signal’s website? Why is it not so to prove that Signal endorses signal-cli?
NB: If signal-cli is prooved trustworthy, I intend to follow this procedure to link my signal-desktop with my signal-cli: https:// ctrl.alt.coop/en/post/signal-without-a-smartphone/
Thank you for your thoughts! Much appreciated!!
