Private: everything is in your hands
QRTalk consists of a server and a mobile app. You can run your own server, or connect to a server run by someone else you trust. You are in control of data storage, physical server access and service life-span.
Secure: strong end-to-end encryption
All exchanged messages are encrypted end-to-end on your device. Encryption is done using a serial combination of symmetric-key and public-key cryptography, much like PGP does. Asymmetric key pairs are generated on your device.
Temporary: user selected time-to-live
All exchanged messages are tagged with a user selected time-to-live. When time-to-live expires messages are deleted from server, from your device and from all destination devices.
Anonymous: no personal info
QRTalk uses anonymous random IDs to identify users and groups. User IDs are used to route messages from sender to recipient devices. The only information stored on server is anonymous user and group IDs, public keys, avatar pictures and nicknames.
