Tox Messenger – An Open Source alternative for Skype
Tox is a free, open source, end-to-end encrypted messenger that allows you to communicate securely with your family, and friends. It is completely decentralized, peer-to-peer messenger without relying on any central server. The communication between you and your friend should always remain private and secure. Nobody knows what you’re communicating, except the recipient of course. The idea behind the development of Tox was born when the NSA whistle bowler Edward Snowden’s leaks of NSA spying activity. The Tox project has been started by single anonymous developer back in 2013, and now hundreds of active developers are contributing to this project.
