BitTorrent has launched a new secure messaging app for iOS today called "Bleep."
BitTorrent Bleep, which originally launched on Mac in alpha last September, is a privacy-focused messaging platform that keeps messages out of the cloud, instead sending them directly to the recipient with end-to-end encryption. As of today's public release, iOS users can take advantage of Bleep's secure messaging as well.
Here's the breakdown of Bleep's main features:
- Sign-up with email, mobile number or just go incognito
- Send and receive online and offline text and images
- Make and receive voice-calls over cellular data or WiFi to other Bleep users
- Import your address-book contacts
- Invite friends over email, SMS or share your public key
- Move an existing desktop account to a mobile device
- Messages are sent fully encrypted and stored locally
- Easily delete your message history
In addition to the above features, today's release brings what BitTorrent calls "whispers." The feature essentially works like Snapchat messaging, causing a whisper message to disappear once the recipient has read it.
If you're a privacy-minded individual and you'd like to give Bleep a shot, you can hit up the store link below to get started.
