V. 4.1.4.(310) from f-droid: all my contacts when invited to chat show this error. After approval, everything works.
Bug or feature?
How can a user verify a key, so this doesn’t happen?
FYI: all contacts are kontalk contacts, registered with phone number and all.
I believe you bumped into the key verification feature.
When you first see a person, the app asks if you know about the public key that the other person is offering. This is called public key authentication.
Did I answer your question?
Thank you! I guess there’s 1. My lack of knowledge of how to use Kontalk or 2. UX issue or 3. both. Thanks!
Don’t worry, it’s most probably a UX issue. Explaining how public key works is not easy, if you have specific ideas I really would like to hear them.
