Element 1.9.7 Messenger Description
I have long wanted to add Element - this is an excellent open-source messenger for the Matrix project, which promises especially high data security, as many assure you, you can communicate and not worry about being tapped.
So, for your information, the open Matrix network supports chats like IRC and XMPP, as well as end-to-end encrypted video telephony. Thanks to the open-source clients Element (formerly known as Riot.im which was actively available for Linux), you can use the messenger on almost any platform.
When registering, it is not necessary to provide a phone number. However, it is now mandatory to provide an email address on the main Matrix server, but I think this is not a problem for most of you. Throughout the Element universe, you can have one-on-one conversations or exchange information in groups or open channels. Thus, files can be used together in a team, the entire conversation, as mentioned above, is encrypted as much as possible. The point is especially interesting - with the help of Element, you can also exchange information with users of other networks, such as Telegram, Mumble or IRC, through bridges.
So, our dear users, the Element messenger, which was previously known as Riot, is recommended by numerous data protection experts, you can read a large number of reviews on the Internet, the information is available. If you want to communicate on the Internet, but at the same time not reveal any data about yourself, I advise you only this client, do you know a good alternative? Write in the comments.
