Keybase | Software Removal | Non-free

Discussion: Software Removal Discussion for Keybase
Why?: Keybase’s server is non-free software:
https://github.com/keybase/client/issues/6374
They don’t respect fundamental software freedoms for offering a secure service.


I know we do list this as a warning already for Keybase:

keybase-warning

Free software is not necessarily more private or secure than closed software. We’re recommending the best tools for a specific job: Protecting your privacy and data online.

Additionally, the Keybase client is open source, and seeing as all the encryption happens client-side, whatever happens on the server doesn’t affect your security in any major way.
