    Berty Messenger for iOS and Android - Zero Trust Open Source Peer-to-Peer Messenger based on IPFS protocol

    Danie van der Merwe · news.movim.eu / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Friday, 25 March - 16:48 · 1 minute

No Face, No Name, No Number, No SIM card, No Internet! Berty is a messenger that doesn’t require any of your personal data or network connection (using Bluetooth Low Energy BLE). All conversations are encrypted with end-to-end encryption, in a fully distributed network.

It is a peer-to-peer messenger with no servers, no cloud - your data is only stored on the device where Berty is installed and used. No one would be able to access the data or shut the app down, not even the developers.

Being P2P, it means the IP address needs to be available to route messaging, but their site explains a bit about how they've tried to mask this. Whilst Briar is an excellent alternative, it is still Android only. The closest alternative is maybe Jami, but it lacks a non-Internet Bluetooth alternative if I recall correctly. Interestingly, Berty also can use Airdrop (iOS to iOS) and Android's Nearby as alternative protocols.

You can share your details and add contacts via a QR code, public key, or an invite link. It is currently available on both iOS and Android, with desktop clients to follow.

    Why Telegram became the go-to app for Ukrainians - it is very large groups and broadcasting, more than pure security, but that's not all

    Danie van der Merwe · news.movim.eu / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Friday, 25 March - 11:43 · 1 minute

Telegram has several key features that make it an appealing option for communications relating to the war.

It facilitates public and private groups of up to 200 000 users (where individuals can send messages and interact), and channels (which allow one-way broadcasting to channel subscribers). Through these groups and channels, organisations can reach hundreds of thousands of people with messages and audio/video live-streaming – all of which is encrypted and stored on the Telegram “cloud”.

However, while both public and private communications on Telegram are encrypted, the default encryption setting is not end-to-end encryption, and instead happens on a client/server basis.

The data is stored (albeit in an encrypted form) in the cloud and distributed across multiple data centres throughout the world. These data centres are controlled by legal entities in various jurisdictions, and subject to the laws of those jurisdictions. This data could be decrypted, although doing so would be difficult.

One feature that differentiates it from WhatsApp is anonymous forwarding. And there are actually more reasons that also differentiate it from WhatsApp and Signal, which make it more ideally suited for situations such as this. Interestingly, there has also been a 48% increase in the number of Russian subscribers on Telegram since 24 February, when Russia’s invasion began.
