What can i use for a private chat with some friends, nothing fancy at all, just text and images, with a reasonable percent of privacy?

>>136 > Instead of Twitter use Gab > Instead of Facebook use Minds > Instead of Google use DuckDuckGo Stop trading one centralized platform for another, I'll remind everyone twitter and facebook started out pretty free-speech too. The only answer is decentralization.
>>152 >>151 What do I use instead of DDG?
>>153 A searx instance, or YaCy if you're hardcore.
>>154 Thanks, I'll look into those.
>>154 What about swisscows?
>>152 > The only answer is decentralization. Well, at least you had the common courtesy to suggest there may be a better alternative. Maybe you're not just a Marxist goon like all the rest then. Mind giving us some specifics you have in mind?
>>158 The webring is a start, next we need some cryptowizard to come up with an actual WebRing chat
>>134 qtox is good, just learn how to use it
>>136 >some stupid feeemale's choices What is that site anyway? Is it one of her listed ones, because if not.....
If you want truly private, XMPP with OMEMO en d-to-end encryption is the way to go.
tox is nice if you don't need group conversations in android or to synchronize anything (this is cringe and useless, don't). There are good clients (ratox, toxic, qtox) for linux, you can pick your fav flavor.
>>158 Tox is a P2P software but the network traffic might be too much to be handled in a single phone. I dunno, never got it to work mainly because never had a friend or relative patient enough to install it and test it. You might look up XMPP/Matrix if you want a federated alternative.
Session messenger is safe and anonymous
>>271 What do we know of the company behind the app?
>>271 Crypto honeypot
>>273 Operated by whom? There is a dozen agencies that would like to pull off a heist like this.

>>134 Just write your own protocol you fucking mog.
>>277 Making your own protocol is rarely a god idea, more so when cryptography is involved, and most of all if the person asking is unfamiiar with programming and by all indicatins have no real knowlegde of crypto. The infamous Debian crypto disaster is an excellent example of what happens when ordinary developers meddle with things they do not fully grasp. We still do not know the full implication of that case, and probably never will.
>>134 GNU jami
>>153 Searx or whoogle
You could use Signal or Telegram or Matrix
>>317 Telegram isn't safe to use outside of private one-on-one calls, and feds lurk around it.
Mumble Open source, able to host on own hardware, simple design, and not resource heavy, works on just about anything, even dated 32bit hobby machines.
Session >signal fork >normie and user friendly >no phone number >no email >available in fdroid >based on lokinet, decentralized I tried tox for a while but it drains your phone battery. It's nice if you are only discussing with your friends at home or at a particular hour.
