ChatSecure

ChatSecure is an instant messaging client for iOS that integrates encrypted "Off the Record" messaging support from the libotr library. It uses the LibOrange library to handle all of the AIM (OSCAR) functionality and the XMPPFramework to handle Jabber/GTalk (XMPP).

Cost

This project is *100% free* because it is important that all people around the world have unrestricted access to privacy tools. However, developing and supporting this project is hard work and costs real money. Please help support the development of this project!
