That maybe true for Whatsapp but Signal has worked hard to tackle that.

Adding users to groups is not possible unless they are already in your contacts in the first place, as Signal pull contacts from your local contacts. But they never share the number, and only if other people have that same number already in their contacts will it be show to both parties.

That is plain wrong. Telegram does not encrypt by default and not at all in channels. Signal ALWAYS encrypts for one to one and for group chats.

I am not going to go through picking apart all you said, suffice to say not all of it is accurate.

ISO is short for ISO 9660 which is the CD image spec. It just means burning a CD image to a USB device to boot off.

Essentially, you can boot PCs off removable media, and typically that is some sort of USB device with an alternative OS on it. You might have in your time booted off a physical CD as a recovery option. Because physical media has ceases to become popular, USB sticks have replaced them, but the mechanism is the same,

Depending on how much freedom you have to make your own choices, you could just pick any printer and Raspberry Pi/Alt SBC as a host, then configure is for people to send jobs either by Bluetooth, Wifi or email.

Alternatively, if you are less concerned about giving up your data to the cloud, you can use something like Printnode and a Kiosk to do much of the same things.
