Ricochet is an open-source project to allow private and anonymous instant messaging. It is:
- metadata-resistant: nobody knows who you talk to, or what you say
- anonymous: none of your contacts know your location or IP address
- decentralised: here are no servers to trust, monitor, or hack
- easy-to-use: your messages are automatically secure and private
We believe software like Ricochet is important to protect freedom of expression for whistleblowers, activists, and journalists worldwide.
Ricochet Refresh is an initiative backed by Blueprint for Free Speech to bring Ricochet into 2019 and beyond. For more information on Ricochet and how to contribute to Ricochet Refresh, please visit the project website.
