A List Of Instant Messengers With End-To-End Encryption

The instant messengers apps listed below all use end-to-end encryption.

This means that your messages are encrypted before they leave your device. Hence your messages are secured against snoopers before they are transmitted.

  • Tox: free secure message without advertising forever
  • Wire: open source secure messaging (encryption for messenger, voice, video, conference calls, file-sharing, and external collaboration)
  • Jami: Voice, video and chat communications, encrypted and decentralized
  • Jitsi: secure, full featured video conferencing
  • Briar: encrypted instant messenger that connects to contacts via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Tor over the internet to synchronize messages

These services have end-to-end encryption but they require a phone number or other identifying information to work:

  1. What about new [url=https://getsession.org/]Session[/url] messenger?
    Mesh network, end-to-end encryption, doesn’t requires phone number.
    Blockchain on Loki network.

    I’m not affilated.

      Signal requires your to enter a telephone number to work. But I added it to the list for the sake of completeness.

      1. How about Session messenger? (getsession.org). It uses an onion inspired system to deliver your messages. It is also a decentralized messenger, and needs no mobile phone number. Features group chats.

        There’s also riot.im/matrix, which I personally don’t like/use, but it exists. (The whole sake of e2e messanging is being normie friendly. For the effort of matrix, I could be pgp’ing text with people already)

        Also, perhaps this article could be extended by notices, such as afaik, for Jami to deliver your messages, both users need to be online, correct me if I am wrong.
