In the times in which we live, we need to reinforce our communications' security on the Internet if we want to preserve our privacy. Tox, the secure version of Skype, appears with this idea in mind.
A messaging client that protects your privacy.
The NSA's scandals have led many users to consider whether the Internet is as harmless and anonymous as it seems. For those who would prefer that their life wasn't vulnerable and exposed to the Internet, there's now a promising messaging client.
Safe and easy to use
In Tox, the delivery of messages is carried out in a secure manner, as they travel encrypted. For such purpose, this communications platform implements the Tox protocol (similar to the technology behind BitTorrent). On the other hand, another positive aspect of this client is how easy it is to use, which makes it suitable for all sorts of users, including those that have never used a messaging program before.
Finally, we have to mention that Tox, also known as uTox, is licensed as GPLv3 open source software, which guarantees that a large user community can modify and improve the application. Furthermore, it will always be distributed for free and without adverts.
