In these times of Corona and COVID-19, secure and trustworthy communication is more important than ever. Whether privately with friends and family, at school and university or at work. Do you trust proprietary applications of large tech companies with dubious data protection practices? Now we offer secure and free instant messaging and video conferencing with NitroChat and Nitrokey Meet. The special thing: Both solutions are trustworthy thanks to open source, modern encryption technology and German location. We do not reinvent the wheel, but rely on modern technology without manufacturer lock-in.
With NitroChat you can chat end-to-end encrypted and make calls with audio and video. It's based on the Matrix network and the Riot client, available for all major operating systems (including mobile). Similar to email, Matrix is federated and allows you to communicate with users of other Matrix providers. Therefore Matrix is not dominated by a single vendor but is an open system. By the way: These advantages have also induced the German Bundeswehr and the French authorities and ministries to use Matrix.
Nitrokey Meet lets you organize transport encrypted and privacy-friendly video conferences with your colleagues, business partners, friends, students, and family. For Nitrokey Meet, which is based on Jitsi, you don't need an account or additional software. Instead, all you need is a web browser and with a single click, even the most inexperienced user can dial in. The meeting address can be freely chosen and will be deleted after the meeting is finished. Of course you can also set a meeting password.
We hope NitroChat and Nitrokey Meet will help you in these times. We wish you health, strength and confidence. Please take care of yourself and others.
