BitTorrent's P2P Secure Messaging App 'Bleep' Released

BitTorrent's P2P Secure Messaging App Bleep Released

I think it's time to leave cloud based messaging apps and hold your data in your own hands! Yes, Torrent giant BitTorrent has released its decentralized chat platform "Bleep" to provide you the most secure messaging service.

Bleep is available on Android, iOS, Windows and Mac OS. The most interesting thing about Bleep is, it doesn't need your personal information to get started. All you have to do is, choose a nickname.

It also doesn't store personal data or chat logs anywhere except on your own local device, which means that your personal data is safe. 

Farid Fadaie,  the head of product for BitTorrent Bleep said, "We keep messages and the encryption keys for images stored on your local device, not the cloud. For messages and metadata, there is no server for hackers to target and because you hold the keys, images can’t be leaked to haunt you later. We've solved server-less peer-to-peer messaging, including the ability to get offline friends your messages when they come back online."

This release also includes a brand new feature called "Whisper" that enables you to send self destructing messages that disappear from devices after they've been viewed (25 seconds). 

Whisper messages also have an additional protection for screenshots. If a friend manages to capture the screen, they won’t be able to capture who said what, since nicknames are blocked out. And if you forget who you’re whispering with, you tap the "eye" to display the nickname, but the conversation gets blurred. They can capture the conversation or the sender, but not both at the same time.

You can download Bleep from the following links: Android, iOS, Windows, MacOS.
