Can we get a "delete account" feature? I made an account to have a look, it's really cool, but I'd like to remove my account now. I sent you a message on it

"with firebase you can set security rules for specific documents and collections in the backend"

This is absolutely NOT what encryption is. This is access control.

I didn't say it's encrypted but access is limited which means no one can see your chats or messages

Hey man I'm really sorry for treating like that I didn't understand you my apologies !!!
I didn't understand that my database was exposed and also the service account was exposed on GitHub.
I had an 'allow read' at the top of my firebase rules it was for testing and I forgot to delete it but now I fixed it and also I revoked the old service account and made a new one.
For deleting the account I just got lazy to do it and I have exams these weeks but I put a warning on GitHub and on this post for people to not use a fake google account.
MAN thank you so much and I hope you accept my apologies.
