★ UNBEATABLE PRIVACY: We keep your messages 100% private using state of the art Off-The-Record (OTR) encryption. Your conversations cannot be logged or intercepted by anyone. NOTE: These security measures only apply when your friend also uses ChatSecure, or uses a compatible OTR client like Xabber, Jitsi, Adium or Pidgin.
★ NO SNOOPING: Your connection is encrypted so nobody can spy on your conversation. And the messages aren't even kept in system memory for any prying apps to find.
★ FULL LOCAL ENCRYPTION: All contacts, messages and account data are fully encrypted on your device, and protected by an optional password.
★ COMPLETELY FREE, UNLIMITED MESSAGING: No charges, ever. Chat all day with your friends across the street or across the ocean.

    Fantastic, been waiting for this update for a long time, very stable but I'm still having problems with OTR not initiating an encrypted session with chatsecure on both phones.

    Really love the app, but after the latest release it won't even login to my jabber server.

    Since the latest update, things are screwed up. Every time I log out, I am unable to log back in. I get an error message of invalid password...I don't know how that happens because I don't even get an option of setting a password when initially adding my hangout account. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no luck. Please fix.

    Both my wife and I are unable to login anymore using chat secure. This just started this weekend. Reinstalling did not remedy the problem.
