p2p instant messenger for the Tor network

A review of TorChat by Fernando Ortega

TorChat is a basic and portable freeware instant messaging application which allows you to chat securely with other people. The TorChat network is peer-to-peer with a decentralized design, similar to Gnutella. This decentralized network gives you high anonymity and being portal, does not leave any traces on your system.

This is actually the Windows version, but the developer also provides a version for Linux.

TorChat can hide your true IP address, circumvent state censorship and text chat.

TorChat on 32-bit and 64-bit PCs

This download is licensed as freeware for the Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system on a laptop or desktop PC from instant messaging software without restrictions. TorChat is available to all software users as a free download for Windows 10 PCs but also without a hitch on Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Though this program tested positive for virus tests, some people don't view it as a virus or malware. This could mean toolbars or system modifications.

Compatibility with this instant messenger software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Bernd Kreuss.
