Eliminate metadata. Nobody knows who you are, who you talk to, or what you say.
Stay anonymous. Share what you want, without sharing your identity and location.
Nobody in the middle. There are no servers to monitor, censor, or hack.
Safe by default. Security isn’t secure until it’s automatic and easy to use.
Ricochet was pointed to me by a friend in a Slack group of friends sensitive to the arguments of privacy and security. It’s multi-platform – at this time you can install it on Windows, macOS and Linux (as a pre-compiled binary) – open source and its developer John Brooks is searching for people using and testing the platform.
I am intrigued by this platform and have decided to install it, and invited some friends to try this out. If you want to add me to your network, please leave me a comment in this post with a valid email address so I can send you my ricochet:id.
