Do you mean that website https://u.is? I've heard of it but didn't try yet. So does it really worth giving a chance? It's a little scary to install such a big file on my PC..

What I can say is that's not of my importance. The fact that worries me more is why do I have to enter my phone number to use a secureed messenger? Why is it considered to be better than WhatsApp? For example Utopia p2p is less known, but doesn't require any personal data and can't be blocked. But people prefer to choose something that is more well known, no matter it can steal your data.
