An encrypted chat solution growing in popularity vs. the NSA
A review of BitWise IM by Tina de Pierre

If you're interested in taking advantage of encryption when chatting over the Internet, the BitWise Chat may be something which would peak your interest. With the growing awareness of government spy programs, BitWise Chat has an renewed user base.

The program is a messaging client which requires no installation and also encodes chat messages and file transfers. It uses the Blowfish encryption algorithm with keys generated for each connection.

The program is designed to work with little interaction between a central server and it includes many of the popular features of more well-known messaging applications like Yahoo! Messenger, just without the issue of privacy.

In addition to sending online messages, you can also use BitWise Chat to send offline messages which may be retrieved once the other party has logged in again.

BitWise IM features and highlights:
  • An instant messenger with many advanced features
  • Encrypted using proven, industry-standard methods
  • Available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux
  • Direct connect, sending messages, etc. without a server
  • Its own network that does not rely on another system
  • Committed to privacy with no ads or spyware
