What is Tor Messenger?

Tor is a Encryption and Messenger is a Chat Platform, that is more secure and protected then other tools. The Best thing is it protects your Network and protect all your traffic which is going through IRC Clients, Jabber or XMPP, or Google Talk, Facebook Chat, Twitter, and ETC messenger.

As, you know how TOR was built and what it become now! Protecting millions of users online and there traffic jumping through TOR network and trying to protect yourself. This has traditionally been in a client-server model, meaning that your metadata (specifically the relationships between contacts) can be logged by the server. However, your route to the server will be hidden because you are communicating over Tor.


Let’s see what dose Official Tor Blog Says about TOR Messenger and Instantbird?


We considered a number of messaging clients: Pidgin, Adam Langley’s xmpp-client, and Instantbird. Instantbird was the pragmatic choice — its transport protocols are written in a memory-safe language (JavaScript); it has a graphical user interface and already supports many natural languages; and it’s a XUL application, which means we can leverage both the code (Tor Launcher) and in-house expertise that the Tor Project has developed working on Tor Browser with Firefox. It also has an active and vibrant software developer community that has been very responsive and understanding of our needs. The main feature it lacked was OTR support, which we have implemented and hope to upstream to the main Instantbird repository for the benefit of all Instantbird (and Thunderbird) users.

  • Note that as a policy, unencrypted one-to-one conversations are not allowed and your messages will not be transmitted if the person you are talking with does not have an OTR-enabled client. You can disable this option in the preferences to allow unencrypted communication but doing so is not recommended.
