    The Tor Project has launched the beta version of Tor Messenger, an easy-to-use encrypted message client for those concerned about their privacy and potential surveillance.

    The Tor Project is a non-profit which runs the Tor network, a system of routes and servers designed to make online users more difficult to track online and disguise Internet activity, as well as access hidden areas of the Web hosted on .onion websites.

    One of the non-profit's projects is Tor Messenger. The client, now released to the general public, is based on Instantbird, a messaging app which allows users to connect to separate messenger systems.
