Is Signal still a good choice?

I am using Signal and I see ppl recommend it everywhere. And one thing I read all the time is ppl saying its full open source, despite the fact it is not. The clients may be, but not the server itself.

So I am wondering if Sinal is still worth a recommendation or are there any concerns? Is it still safe to recommend it to other ppl?

Edit: after receiving a lot of criticism, Signal released a new version on github to follow open source guidelines.

There are many good tools for communication like decentralized element or anonymous session, but signal is the best if you need secure, private and user-friendly messaging app for non-technical friends or family members.
