[jitsi-users] OTR: First message appears unencrypted?


#1

Hello Jitsi Community,

first of all, my contact is using the latest version of Jitsi on Ubuntu, I'm using the XMPP client "Conversations" on Android.

Whenever my contact starts a chat, their first message appears as unencrypted. This is a risk, as even the first message may contain sensitive information.

All subsequent messages are encrypted.

Do you have any pointers as to why this might happen?

Cheers,

dej

Hello dej, does it work correctly if you initiate a secure session before
sending the first text message?

I will have them try that on the Jitsi end and get back to you with the results!

Hi dej,

I have experienced something similar a *while* back. It was probably
about a year back.

I was not able to reliably reproduce this. I do remember very vividly
that I modified the general OTR preferences (*after* having encountered
such an issue) and I believe it disappeared after that. (With modifying,
I mean change some settings but in the end I decided to set it back to
default - the settings that I started with.)

At that time it was quite vague and I was looking into another OTR issue
which was I able to fix later on. In the end I was not sure anymore
about the issue you described and could not reproduce it.
