Internet offers a lot of handy ways of communication like Skype, instant messaging, facebook, blogs, e-mail, etc. Everyone can choose any way to their liking.
But what about security? Internet is famous for not being a secure channel to communicate. Mailboxes or social accounts can be easily hacked.
Even your talks encrypted using a special plug-in in the instant messaging system can be intercepted and deciphered through logs stored on your computer. Moreover, no one man can set up that plug-in for encrypted communication. But now, thanks to new OTR.to service communication via Internet is 100% secure. Safer than telling someone in person, because even the walls have ears, while a chat in OTR.to disappears forever once you close a tab.
How to use this service :
“This is probably very difficult!” you may think. No! It’s an easy work. To start a completely secure conversation, you should:
1) Go to otr.to website
2) Copy a unique URL specifically generated for you
3) Share it with your talker.
That’s it! Once your friend follow the link, you both will make it into a secure chat. Whatever you type there, the text will disappear completely once a chat tab is closed.
Instead of the link an ID can be shared. It is shorter than the URL, so it’s easy to send it via SMS or to dictate it over the phone.
Self Destruct Message!!? :
There is also a SelfDestruction Message option
You can type your message and click a “create message” button. Then share a generated URL with your recipient, clicking on which they will see your message. Then it will be destroyed, like in case with a live chat.
So you should get used to new reality, when the Internet is a safe place to talk!
