Ricochet is an anonymous and secure chat powered by TOR Network. Instead of usernames, it provides you with a long random string that looks something like ricochet:qs7ch34jsj24ogdf which is the address of the user. Messages sent using this tool are end-to-end encrypted and fully anonymous.
This tool is an experimental kind of instant messaging that doesn’t trust anyone with your identity, your contact list, or your communications.
- You can chat without exposing your identity (or IP address) to anyone
- Nobody can discover who your contacts are or when you talk (metadata-free!)
- There are no servers or operators that could be compromised, exposing your information.
- It’s cross-platform and easy for non-technical users.
It is a peer-to-peer instant messaging system built on the Tor Network hidden services. Your login is your hidden service address, and contacts connect to you (not an intermediate server) through Tor. The rendezvous system makes it extremely hard for anyone to learn your identity from your address.
