Around 8000 clients in Myanmar/Burma are connected the Tor network. This does not count the users connected by bridges to Tor.

In Briar all communication goes through Tor, to protect your identity.
To circumvent censorship, Briar gives you access to bridges in case Tor is blocked by your ISP.

In case of internet shutdown, Briar can use Bluetooth and WiFi to pass on messages to your contacts.

Different methods of using them, will fulfill different needs.

Thanks for the link. There is also lots good info on survivalist sizes. Search for "off grid communication".
Mostly right wing, but good advice.
Also, don't only use Briar, Tor, etc. That is like walking through a city in full camouflage, and believing you won't be noticed. Have a 'normal behavior' for non sensitive stuff.
