PrivyTalks – Simple, Secure & Instant Chats
Online communication is a part of every designer/developer. With our friends, customers or colleagues, chats are usually the fastest and easiest way of communication.
Sometimes, the information we exchange online can be critical like passwords or "details of a project" and we want to make sure that it is private.
PrivyTalks is a free, simple and security-focused chat application that encrypts and decrypts the communication with RSA on the client-side.
Usage is pretty straightforward; once the room is created, the chat link is shared among two partners and the communication begins.
And, to make sure that there is no 3rd party sniffing the communication, fingerprints are created for each side, so they can exchange this information via another channel (like e-mail or SMS) and check if the connected user is the one that they are expecting.
That may sound paranoid but I'm sure every user had moments on worrying "what would happen if that info was leaked out" (and PrivyTalks is a simple + strong solution for the case).
The fast and real-time communication engine is built with Socket.io and the application works in all major browsers including mobile.
