"..........In the past, Signal calls always relayed the client media streams through the Signal service.With these updates, Signal can attempt to establish a "peer-to-peer" connection for the call.

Do you think has also the disadvantage of exposing end user location to passive network analysis, not also to the remote peer?

Do I overstimate the benefit of "relay server scrambling"?

Or that is not a real problem, more like a.... "mass surveillance  philosophic problem"?
