Many instant messengers already use encryption to secure message contents, but they can't hide important metadata such as your IP address and who you are communicating with!
To hide all your information, including your metadata, identity, and IP address, Chat.onion uses onion routing (Tor) to send each message over several randomly selected proxy servers. Multiple layers of encryption are used to ensure that each proxy only knows it's immediate successor and predecessor, but not the entire message route.
Chat.onion is completele free: There are no ads, you don't have to pay anything, and we can't sell your data. Chat.onion uses peer-to-peer technology and the existing Tor network, so we don't need to cover any server costs.
Chat.onion users are identified via 16 character checksums of their public keys. To connect with other users, send them your ID, show them your QR code, or use your camera to scan theirs.
The proxy servers are operated by thousands of volunteers worldwide. Chat.onion does not run a proxy or bridge node on your device, so you don't have to worry about anyone else wasting your bandwidth.
If you added live video feed and file exchangeing I would give you 5 stars and promote it obviously I can't say who I'm an as I'm john doe but I insure you this would be the most used app in less than 2 months after you add these features
Really like the app's simplicity and anonymity but unusable as battery drain is excessive. 3 phones used: opo, zte and Alcatel on 3 versions of Android. Fix it and I'll reinstall.
Great app quick support!! Asked for a feature and it was implemented a week later! Awsome developer.
Does what it promises. It is a shame it won't work for email also.
Let me know once I ll install it then ll it show me who installed this app or using this app or not.
I will give you 5 stars if you make it exchange files as well.
Needs groupt chat and the option to password protect login...
Please make an iPhone version as well. Thanks
come chat with me yydzgmqnzn4rxmtd
Cool! Why not to put it in F-Droid repo as well?
Lots to like here, it just works!
Thx, how about adding an option to delete the message once read ?
Drains my battery while trying to send my messages
No integration with other apps making this a basic and secure messaging. It may have no integration because doing so makes it less secure. It would be nice to have the option though. To load/push copy cloud storage links instead of creating public share and then pasting in message. A way to make secured shared inside of this app
