Tor Messenger Lets People Chat Securely
Tor is an open network and a free software that aids people shield against traffic investigation. The messenger allows both individuals and organizations to share data over public systems without compromising privacy.
The Onion Router is an underground network concerned about privacy and potential impact of government surveillance to a person's life. To make it short, it gives people anonymity and freedom of communication versus an oppressing government. And now, the network has released a beta version for its cross-platform chat program, which lets individuals securely chat on familiar messaging services.
Based on Mozilla's Instantbird messaging client, the messenger now supports programs like Yahoo, Twitter, Facebook messenger, Google Talk and Jabber. The programs permits off-the-record messaging with an easy-to-use user interface with multiple language support.
Tor unites people in cross-platform networks, so that they can continue interacting in a way their contacts are able to do. While most IM services are client-server-based models that logs metadata. Tor hides people's server routes.
Users can download the beta program versions on Windows, Linux and OS X to start running it. While using the program, the programming team will continue to fix bugs and pushing updates as needed. Users are invited to give feedbacks, file program bugs and make requests. As a free network of tunnels for routing page downloads and network requests, the project makes it impossible for the surveillance people to figure out who they are.
Previously, Facebook launched a version of its social network for the Tor project. This allows people to access the social networking site who have poor internet connections providing them a stable connectivity.
The Tor program is used to avoid cyberspace detection. Whether for good or evil purposes, the project hides individuals from the surveilling eyes of a suppressive government. It made headlines when the Russians put a $100,000 bounty on the network for anyone able to hack the system.
