Ricochet is a dead project , and its produces multiple problems:
- The application is dead , no further updates
- It uses Tor 2.x while stable Tor is 3.x
- Tor 3.x fixes hidden services issues which Tor 2.x was having , since Ricochet depending on the Hidden services then this is a problem to the privacy
- Ricochet has the lacks of alot of things like sharing files,voip,voice messages ...etc
- Last anybody made any changed to the software was before at least a Year ago
- no body using it then no further testing then more 0 day at high possibility
Re-installing it once it will be uploaded to Debian official repos with new and working version. having it by default is worthless,meaningless...
