I’m trying to set up a verified group but have no smartphone available myself. Others also use the desktop-app.
So the question is, if there is any way to verify contacts between dekstops?
I think, I understand the reason why there is no option to go around the scan-QR feature in the UI, otherwise most people would just click OK without actually verifying the contact. And using notebook webcams or similar is probably not as easy as accessing the camera of a smartphone. (Is it planned to implement it in the desktop app?)
But as far as I understand the verification process it would be enough to compare the key fingerprints, available in the encryption Info to each contact. Is it possible to access the deltachat-desktop instance by going though the core-cli and verify a contact manually?
Thanks for your magnificent work! (as far as I can tell, the only way to have an encrypted chat spanning all major OS for now)
