This is about saving images sent through the Signal messaging app. I'm using latest iOS, but answers for Android users also welcome.
I have images created and sent via encrypted chat. I will put them in an encrypted container on my Macbook, but need an unexposed way to transfer them.
They aren't in the global gallery of my iPhone and I don't want them to be, to avoid any situation where they might be synced into iCloud. So I can't use the "Save" contextual menu on the image, and need to avoid iCloud sync and Dropbox.
What is the best path to get these images onto my Macbook without exposing them to a cloud system?
The app has a sharing feature you can use on images, that brings up the global dialog. Is there an obvious app that I can send the images to that will be accessible from macOS?
Thanks, figured this was a need many people would have when using Signal on a phone that otherwise isn't set up for extreme privacy (i.e. never enabling iCloud photo sync at all)
