Awesome! :tada:

For those of you who are not familiar, Briar is a very unconventional messaging application. It doesn’t have central servers and has anonymity to avoid privacy problems of peer-to-peer.

The lack of ability to add contacts without meeting them in person what the biggest problem to really use it I think. So this is quite an improvement.

@vasilis have you tested out the flow of adding a remote contact? If so, how is it?

Not yet, but I would love to add remote contacts.
In case anyone would like to add me as a remote contact please ping or send me a direct message.
