It's a great app for end to end encryption. It does totally deserves 5 stars. Easy to use but there are 3 drawbacks.

I removed 3 stars.

  • Usernames are not decentralized. Keybase developer has full power to delete your account permanently.
  • Too many bugs development team more focused on developing half baked new shiny stuff instead of fixing bugs. Github issues page filled with unanswered/unassigned tickets. People can't even get sound notifications when they get message such a deal breaker problem ignored by developer team.
  • In some cases privacy worse than Facebook. Everyone in the world can see your followers and see everyone's validated accounts. So It's super easy to understand who is friend with who.

Basically this developer is crypto version of Mark Zuckerberg.

Wish Keybase was federated/decentralized, but notwithstanding the drawback of a centralized server, it is an excellent app.

It's free and open source. It uses end to end encryption and provides a way to verify people's identity.
