  • The app lives in your browser, and is currently supported in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera. It opens a chat room that you name. Multiple people can join the chat room and all of them see everything being sent. However, you will know who the other participants are.

One thought on “Use CryptoCat for Private Chat Rooms

  1. I really like CryptoCat (on the iPhone, however, I prefer Threema), but what I always wondered is why they chose the browser route. Doesn’t the fact that it’s browser-based make it (more) vulnerable?
