What is a man-in-the-middle attack, and how does Wire protect me from this?

A man-in-the-middle attack occurs when two users believe they are communicating with one another, but instead a third party intervenes in the conversation.

Wire protects you from a man-in-the middle attack by enabling you to verify your conversations by comparing key fingerprints with your contacts. Matching key fingerprints ensure that you're talking to the correct person, and not to a third party who is posing as your contact.
