Using (long range) frequencies to leverage the reach of .
(a e2e encrypted messenger that routes everything through Tor when there is internet connection, if there is none, it can create a meshnet)

Currently only a gitlab issue.

But a prototype that uses instead of briar reports to have a reach for about 1-2km (single device to single device) and can be used for around 8 days without recharging.

Do you know that you can add any RSS feed into briar?

Didn't use #Briar in a year, seems you can now add contacts without meeting them. Anyone using Briar?

" over would be absolutely fantastic and we'd welcome and enccourage anyone who wishes to take on that project. Unfortunately I don't have the time or Briar knowlege to do it at the moment, but if someone who does has SAM or I2CP or even i2ptunnel questions I can certainly help answer those."

@briar I'm really happy to see Briar on the Fediverse now 😊 I've been following the project for a long while and always recommend it when someone needs a private method of communication 😉

also has a desktop version. Currently it is only an alpha release so you might run into some bugs.
If you do, please report them back! Here, or even better in its issue tracker:

here’s the blogpost by nico to this release:

And: Nico is looking for someone helping to make it a package.

We are looking for volunteers to test a new feature with us. Please spread the word and fill out this form, if you want to participate.

provides private messaging, public forums and blogs that are protected against the following surveillance and censorship threats:

- Metadata surveillance
- Content surveillance.
- Takedown orders.
- Denial of service attacks.
- Internet blackouts

is a messaging app designed for activists, journalists, and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate.

Unlike traditional messaging apps, Briar doesn’t rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly between the users’ devices. If the internet’s down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi... If the internet’s up, Briar can sync via the Tor network, protecting users and their relationships from surveillance.
