windows default iconTorChat Publisher's description

torchat is messenger application on top of the Tor network and it's location hidden services

TorChat is a peer to peer instant messenger with a completely decentralized design, built on top of Tor's location hidden services, giving you extremely strong anonymity while being very easy to use without the need to install or configure anything.

TorChat just runs from an USB drive on any Windows PC. (It can run on Linux and Mac too, in fact it was developed on Linux with cross platform usability in mind from the very first moment on, but the installation on other platforms than Windows is a bit more complicated at the moment)

Tor location hidden services basically means:

* 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
o what you send or receive (everything is end-to-end encrypted)
o to whom you are sending or receiving from
o where your contacts are located


There basically is no need for any installation or configuration. It just runs out of the box, all batteries are included. Download and unzip the complete archive to somewhere on your harddisk or USB-Drive. The program is inside the folder "bin". Just doubleclick the blue earth symbol named "torchat" or "torchat.exe" to start the application and you should be online soon. See below for more detailed instructions on the usage.

If you update from an older version then do the following: Make sure both versions are not running and then copy the following three files from your old version over to the new version into the exact same locations:

* binbuddy-list.txt
* binTorhidden_servicehostname
* binTorhidden_serviceprivate_key

Now start the new version, make sure it is running and if everything is OK you should completely delete the old version.

buddy-list.txt contains the buddy list (obviously) and the two hidden service files are your TorChat ID (don't ever let these files come into the hands of anybody else, whoever owns these files would be able to pretend to be you!)
