As #Signal has had severe problems recently due to its centralised nature, here are some decentralised libre alternatives with Fediverse accounts:

➡️ @snikket_im - Initiative to give XMPP a consistent look and feel on instances and apps, to make it more attractive to new users

➡️ @xmpp - XMPP standards foundation

➡️ @delta - Decentralised messaging through email

➡️ @matrix - Best known for the Element client

➡️ @briar - Peer-to-peer encrypted messaging

➡️ @Jami - Peer-to-peer Skype alternative

Like decentralised systems never fail 😂.
As long as the fediverse, for instance, doesn't have roaming profiles you still have a single point of failure 😊.

Not to criticize these great alternatives, but more to make people aware of realistic expectations and issues 😊

I am not sure what you mean by "roaming profiles", but you can move your profile, followers, follows and other data from one instance to another on the Fediverse:
