I am not someone obsessed with privacy, that is something that many who know me know, but I do have it in mind enough and I am very aware of everything I say and use on the network because, let's face it, neither google nor facebook nor anyone really takes care of our data, of course, we have alternatives like DuckDuckGo y Diaspora but many do not like these alternatives, and to be honest, D * has become somewhat bland and they gave up to make way for a social network / meme app ... about DuckDuckGo I can't speak because I've only been using it for a few days instead of google and it works for me.
Now, I have also seen alternatives to WhatsApp, the renowned archi «bbpin killer»Which, not only killed the blackberry msn but also is extremely careless with our data and conversations, you know, any moron who has the right program (which I am not going to mention) and is connected to the same Wi-Fi network can steal all of you your conversations and data transferred via whatsapp, how are you?
In the long run I have seen a thousand things when it comes to chatting, really, but all the options have big drawbacks, and one of them is that they either do not have mobile applications or the applications are simply ugly, complicated or simply do not attract attention ... is not the case of Cryptocat, which is an alternative to Gtalk, WhatsApp, Facebook chat, MSN and everything else. It uses XMPP and OTR as protocols.
Cryptocat is safe because it creates two keys, one that it sends to our interlocutor and the other encrypted that will be used to decrypt his messages, that is, totally private.
At the interoperability level, the fun thing about this application is that it works in browsers as a complement for Safari, Chrome / mium, Firefox and it will soon be available as a mobile application and I must tell you that its design is great (XD).
At the moment I am learning to use it although it does not have great difficulty and what I would need in any case is a good number of users, otherwise it is fine; I doubt that it will surpass WhatsApp but at least I plan to use it to annoy my friends and to have something to prove since it not only defends my privacy but is also free (did you think I was going to review something that was not?)
I hope you guys are encouraged to try it too.
