What happened, Sup Forums?

You'd think that with Whatsapp, Telegram, Matrix, Signal and all those clients we use now that Tox would be one of the up and coming ones but the project never shows up in any news or even message boards.

The NSA killed it. Try Ring.cx

Ring.cx looks really bad though

Tox is good, but it has the same problem as Signal: no one uses it.
Riot is 10/10 as well.

It is still in development,but fags on Sup Forums dislike that people in your chat can know your ip.

Ring does not even fuck'n work.

use ring works between phone and laptop
turns out only works in lan

What's up with just using Signal?

Jack Davis

You only need to get your bros to install Signal. It's not like everyone needs to use it, just people who you talk to all the time.

It uses tor so effortlessly.

Normies aren't going to install Tor to chat with you

No wonder Tox died.

If you don't want to people to know your IP on Sup Forums why would you let people know your IP on Tox?

Ryder Richardson
Ryder Richardson

Yeah but the normies aren't the ones that care or even know about your IP showing.

Joseph Myers

Even normies complained to Skype when they were getting DDOSed by people and then Skype had to change the entire network to conceal people's IPs.

The problem with Tox is there's no easy way to add your friends. "Oh here I'm on TOX my address is 2044529348980139423958234." instead of "Hey man add me on TOX I'm user.name"

Unless they've changed that, but I dunno how they'd manage while keeping it secure and de-centralized.

Gavin White

Oh here I'm on TOX my address is 2044529348980139423958234.

I prefer that. It's like giving somebody a disposable phone number.

You can have a username assigned to your tox id if you want, most people don't though because it hurts privacy.

Parker Nguyen

I don't mind it either since you only really need to do it once, but your average person will look at that long-ass string and go "WTF is this this service must suck."

Sure there's toxme.io but then you're right back to the whole "There's a database of your tox id linked to your email" problem.

Isaiah Morris

It's so fucking stupid to make these public databases with peoples usernames on them.

His Android was broken so his dad bought him WP.
I was looking for good clients that can communicate with WP but I haven't found any.
I don't chat much via phone so I don't mind using Whatsapp. I haven't used my photo or name on it.

someone needs to make a fake skype program that will look exactly like skype but under the hood it'd be using tox protocols

then you can replace skype on normie computers without them suspecting a thing

Jonathan Gonzalez

I'd move from Telegram to Tox, but I need muh furry porn stickers.

Charles Young

They will definitely suspect it

Kevin Ward

What did Kek mean by this?
You mean like majority of GNU/Linux distros who tried copying Windows?
The real solution is to get mainstream media to advertise them, get it trending on Google Play (but also set it available to FDroid) and normies will sink in.
The only problem is that success of apps lies in advertisements you see all over the web, and those are quite expensive.

Levi Sullivan
Levi Sullivan

no, you just make a program that looks and behaves exactly like skype, down to logos

then you install it on your mom's pc

They need to fix this before I'll consider using it, https://github.com/TokTok/c-toxcore/issues/237

Wire works on windows devices. End to end encryption, text, talk, pictures, videos and lots of shiny bells and whistles. Protocol is called proteus and based on axelotl which moxie developed, full warning though, there was beef between moxie and the lead dev supposedly for copyright issues? That and I don't think the protocol has been independently reviewed by a cypherpunk.

Installed seamlessly on android and looks fucking sexy as shit but installing it on my mint box turned into a shitshow. The git page is a mess, the readme is a joke and they use obscure meme build tools. Long story short, unless your distro packages it or you are familiar with hipster build practices or comfortable with ppas forget it.

It's not secure. It's as good as Whatsapp.

I used Tox, I really wanted it to work, but it's shit for now. Maybe with some work it can become a decent chat program, but for now it lacks many features and has numerous bugs.

It's better than whatsapp in the sense that you have a real desktop client.

Leo Diaz

Worse than whatsapp
