#Dat is a protocol for sharing data between computers.

Dat’s strengths are that data is hosted and distributed by many computers on the network, that it can work offline or with poor connectivity, that the original uploader can add or modify data while keeping a full history and that it can handle large amounts of data.

Ricochet is a different approach to instant messaging that doesn’t trust anyone in protecting your privacy.

  • Eliminate metadata. Nobody knows who you are, who you talk to, or what you say.

  • Stay anonymous. Share what you want, without sharing your identity and location.

  • Nobody in the middle. There are no servers to monitor, censor, or hack. Safe by default. Security isn’t secure until it’s automatic and easy to use.
