      Slack vs Secure Chat opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Slack and Secure Chat do much the same thing in one sense: they allow teams of people to chat, exchange files, and organize themselves into projects with different threads. Slack, however, is poor on privacy: the messages you send are not encrypted and can be read by Slack and others. Secure Chat aims to solve that by offering encrypted chat.
