Ensure messaging anonymity with TorChat
TorChat is a peer to peer instant messenger providing extremely strong anonymity. It is essential that you don’t lose the private_key file belonging to your ID because the one who finds it will be able to pretend to be you.
You can download a fresh copy of TorChat, and add yourself to the buddy list of this new instance (note that you can only run one of them at the same time on the same computer). Then zip it again and give it to a person. You can supply a whole group of people at once with readily configured copies of TorChat.
If you are a journalist you can prepare a version of TorChat with your own ID already on the list but with an empty hidden_service folder and put this for download on your website or otherwise make it publicly available so that everybody (including whistle blowers) can (even if they have zero computer skills) simply unzip it and doubleclick on torchat.exe to instantly chat with you and send files in perfect anonymity from anywhere in the world!
Features: Nobody will be able to find out where you are. * If they are already observing you and sniff your internet connection they will not be able to find out what you send or receive (everything is end-to-end encrypted), or to whom you are sending or receiving from.
