It supports a wide variety of transport networks, including Jabber (XMPP), IRC, Google Talk, Facebook Chat, Twitter, Yahoo, and others; enablesOff-the-Record (OTR) Messaging automatically; and has an easy-to-use graphical user interface localized into multiple languages.

Instructions:

  • On all platforms, Tor Messenger sets the profile folder for Firefox/Instantbird to the installation directory.
  • On Linux, extract the bundle(s) and then run: ./start-tor-messenger.desktop
  • On OS X, copy the Tor Messenger application from the disk image to your local disk before running it.
  • 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.
