Now a days, there is no assurance that our online communications are not being monitored by prying eyes. Every day someone might be watching us about what we’re talking with others, what we’re going to do next, and furthermore our company financial discussions, future growth planning discussions etc. So what are you going to do to communicate securely? Well, here comes ChatCrypt.
What is ChatCrypt?
ChatCrypt is a web chat service that offers military grade secure communication. It encrypts the messages itself using the AES-256 algorithm in CTR mode with a secret password specified by the user.

A live conversation between me and my friend:
The only participants that are using the same password and chat room can read each other messages. The one who don’t know the password, can’t view the messages. More precisely, ChatCrypt holds the encrypted messages only temporarily i.e 10 seconds, so there is no real chance to retrieve even the ciphered texts.
