With a focus on security and ownership
While BitTorrent may be a service more commonly accused of enabling illegal downloads of things like Game of Thrones, it has now launched a new messaging service that is says will be safe from data breaches.
Called BitTorrent Chat, the company says that its goal is "to ensure that your messages stay yours: private, secure and free".
With a focus on "chat security", messages over its chat service will not be stored on any server and will be delivered using an encrypted peer-to-peer network. Oh, and it'll be free.
So if you're concerned about the security of your super-secret online chat convos, then head on over to BitTorrent, though it is only available for private alpha testing at the moment.
Here's some blips you can discuss over chat!
