A while ago the Android version was replaced by a new app (instead of just an upgrade), allegedly because the team LOST THE SIGNING KEY FOR THE ORIGINAL APP[1].

If there is one team you'd expect not to lose a signing key I would have thought it would be that one!

Everyone makes mistakes, but it's pretty scary to hear this happening too.

The other option is if you are a developer and want ultimate control the app is open source. For maximum convenience aught.


woah, a crypto software team lost a signing key.

that's no good.
