Someone should make a messaging app called the "insecure messenger"

It's main purpose would be, to be that opposite of something like signal or riot.im

The app would let you message your friends. But it would transmit messages over plaintext using http.

Then there would be a second screen that shows a basic Wireshark (or tshark) output so that you can see your plaintext messages being sent and received.

But of course.. someone would download the app without understanding what they are doing and get their shit hacked..

    I was thinking about doing something similar using a discord bot

    it would probably get banned from app stores because of the lack of privacy

    And build a public database of those messages. The 'I've got nothing to hide' will fade away fast I think.

    @404response I have no experience with discord bots... I might contribute... Also the website should be super crappy.. like no css or something. Just make it look super sketchy..

    @ewpratten it's really easy actually, there are libraries for js, Python, etc.

    I am making one right now for me and my friends' server

    Your idea somehow rings a bell. What was it? Was it that fishy messenger WhatsApp? Hope got the name right :/

    Even better would be if there was a spectator app...

    Legit just have an insecure messenger then a second app that pisses out conversations and allows people to spectate.

    @ewpratten it could get banned but to be honest it depends on the marketing: if people know what you’re doing is making an insecure messenger (of which there are fucking many on the store) then you’re not at fault.

    It’s safe for novelty purposes.

    @ewpratten Persistent Message logging is forbidden by Discord TOS. But the messenger sounds really great 10/10 would use.
