the only way i am able to see text in chats is to change my font size in
display prefs back to the original factory setting of normal

i have it set to small because my display res is low on small old device

it would be really good if i didn't have to do this, is there any other
way to implement this for the latest-and-greatest chatsecure ???

good guess ...

i ended up completely uninstalling

when i did and installed from scratch there was the prompt for a
password, or the lazy option

i did not see this option screen when upgrading from the latest stable
