Gross misinformation about Telegram in the FSF Blog
In the recently published article : https://fsf.org.in/article/better-than-whatsapp/
There is a very strong misinformation that is project that Telegram is a Free Software. By no definition is Telegram is a Free Software. Only Telegram's clients are a free, but the server is still a black box. Here are some of the references .
"Compared to WhatsApp, Telegram provides Free Software app which means end-to-end encryption can be verified to be working as claimed."
Pros: Signal app is Free Software like Telegram, and in comparison to Telegram it offers server software also as Free Software which makes it better than Telegram."
For example, Telegram's apps (Android, desktop, iOS) are free software but still the service is centralized like WhatsApp. So only Telegram's app respects your freedom but not the service.
There is in no sense does Telegram respects our freedom.
Telegram Summary: We gained Free Software app and bridges but lost end-to-end encryption by default.
The whole section on Telegram and its reference everywhere is wrong. Requesting the community to immediately fix this.
