GibberBot - Get your security on.
These days its not secret that if we don't protect our own privacy no one will. Between large corporations such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Google, and of course who could forget the government, privacy and security are all but things of the past.
The good news is, there is hope. Today I want to share with you a free Android app that adds security and privacy to instant messaging. In most cases folks use this app in lieu of Google Talk (or Hangouts now) and enjoy the benefits of this app. So, what are the benefits you ask?
- Full AES Encryption of Messages from client to client.
- Fingerprint authentication to ensure you are speaking to the person you think you are.
- 100% Free
- No Ads
- Open Source (you can verify what it does).
- Uses the OTR V3 so it's compatible with other apps such as Pidgin on PC, and a few Mac apps that support the OTR protocol.
Above is an example of an encrypted session, and what others would see if they try to spy on your chat.
