Thanks for being a part of the ChatSecure Android community. We are not actively developing this app anymore, but will continue to fix any critical bugs. ChatSecure for iOS and iPhone WILL CONTINUE ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT!

    We are excited to share some great active apps that continue our mission of privacy and security...

    Zom is built by the ChatSecure team, and makes it quick & easy for users to connect without a phone number, central servers or requiring any personal data. Zom is also available for iPhones and iPads.

    Conversations is the best modern open-source, standards-compliant mobile XMPP client. It is lightweight and supports the OMEMO advanced encryption protocol. Great for advanced users.

    ChatSecure is a free and open source messaging app that features OTR encryption over XMPP. You can connect to your existing accounts on Google, create new accounts on public XMPP servers (including via Tor), or even connect to your own server for extra security.

    Unlike other apps that keep you stuck in their walled garden, ChatSecure is fully interoperable with other clients that support OTR and XMPP, such as Xabber, Adium, Jitsi, Zom, Pidgin, and more.

    Strong Cryptography

    ChatSecure only uses well-known open source cryptographic libraries to keep your conversations private. Other apps may make claims about "military grade" security but, without publicly auditable source code and verifiable end-to-end encryption, you cannot be truly safe.

    * XMPP with TLS certificate pinning.
    * OTR for verifiable end-to-end encryption and forward secrecy.
    * Tor to help bypass restrictive firewalls.
    * SQLCipher to locally encrypt conversation logs.

    Free and Open Source

    We believe in the power of free and open source software. The full source code to the iOS and Android apps is available on GitHub.

    Never used it. The problem with this app is that it's not Signal. Signal has been proven to protect against government tyranny in the United States. While I applaud Guardian's attempt at privacy for the people, I've never had good success with any of their apps. I'm currently using Checky again, but only to find out it uses Captcha, which is completely anti privacy in every way, and is a Tor user's enemy. So u tell me? I don't trust anyone who uses Cloudfair.

    This app was the best of it's time. But the developers of the Android version have hard forked the code and are no longer maintaining the upstream version. Switch to another app immediately.

    On android 7 it keeps saying orbot isn't running when it clearly is. Tried selecting chatsecure to run through orbot VPN mode and still same error. Searched Google and don't see any solutions as well.
