I have been searching for a privacy friendly messenger, but have had no luck. It seems all the popular messengers record your conversations online, and are not designed for privacy to begin with. I've heard of Tor chat, but I don't use Tor. Does anyone have any recommendations for a privacy friendly messenger? Anonymous chatting would be a bonus, but my main concern is that my conversation are not being stored remotely. I also want all communications encrypted, and no unique information being shared except what I explicitly allow. The only person that should have access to my conversations is the person i'm chatting with. Open source would be preferable, but not a must. I use W7 X64. I would be very grateful for any recommendations that fit my criteria. Thanks in advance!
