We keep ourselves on a variety of platforms. Please feel free to add us!

Encrypted platforms are preferred to unencrypted ones. Otherwise, they're ordered by preference - email is only at the top due to its ubiquity. Most encrypted chat platforms don't allow you to compare your keys in-software, with an ease of use feature like copying and pasting text comparison, a QR code, etc. We believe this to be a frustrating mistake, and have thus added a verification tool for all our encrypted chats.
