Saw @nvk made a super detailed recovery sheet for CC the other day. Figured I'd make a really simple one for onboarding friends + family. Printing landscape on A4 will give you:-
1x 24 word sheet
1x 12 word sheet
A detachable passphrase sheet for each
Great podcast on self custody and noKYC
Some advice for any new Signal users looking for increased messenger privacy:
You can buy a burner phone or use an unregistered VOIP phone number to sign up.
Make sure to select "Registration Lock = On" so the number can't be recycled and used again on Signal, leading to contacts speaking with an imposter.
Set "Incognito Keyboard = On" to hinder any potential keylogging type attacks.
Lastly, *always* verify your Safety Number before sharing sensitive info.
Use the tools properly ✊

- Mastodon is a federated and open version of twitter. You can use choose between multiple different competing public and private servers called instances. You can also run and use your own instance which is best practice from a trust perspective. Users can interact and 'follow' across instances.
- DMs are not encrypted so instance admins can read them.
- The bitcoinhackers instance is run by @nvk who we trust to keep it up, protect our privacy, and to not censor us.
