OTR fingerprints

Postby T0rwell » Wed Dec 04, 2013 6:42 am

Next to some of my known fingerprints (in the "encryption" section under the "Advanced" tab) I noticed that there is a status indicator. Two designations appear: "Not private" and "finished". Respectfully, what the hell does that mean?

Hi, I can't blame you for asking. This column didn't make sense to me for a good while.

As far as I know it refers to whether your (possible) current chat with the contact is encrypted. I don't know why that was put in the preferences but it has been changed recently (https://hg.adium.im/adium/rev/f0b077047d2a) and this change will probably go into Adium 1.6.
