Manual section needed for Bluetooth and Wi-fi.
I initially loaded Briar on three devices and added each to the other as a contact, as in the manual. I had bluetooth turned on and wi-fi too. The manual says that after scanning the QR code the devices will exchange information and the contacts will be added. This works fine, but what isn't clear is how the process takes place. "You must meet up with the person you want to add as a contact." This implies that bluetooth or local Wi-fi is being used silently. This assumption creates confusion because I then assumed that in Android one just has to have the services activated and the rest is taken care of, as you might expect for easy use in a crisis. I now think that for the devices to send local messages one has to host a hotspot over Wi-fi or bluetooth. So this should be clear in the manual, how to set up the Wi-fi links or bluetooth links properly and what the requirement is for adding contacts. Is it local bluetooth turned on, paired devices required or not, Wi-fi transmitters active, or logged onto same network, full internet access? Can both QR codes be sent by secure e-mail and scanned by the camera at remote locations at the same time, what is the time wimdow? "If the internet's down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis." This is the only information in the manual and potentially wrong assumptions about it make actual testing and getting it working more difficult and confusing than it needs to be. The manual is quite compact, but needs additional concise information about what is going on.
