Mobile messengers have largely replaced email and SMS for most people. Many provide more security by default while being easier to use. However, most existing messaging applications (even WhatsApp) are still not where we need them to be.

Briar is completely Free Software and works peer-to-peer. It is designed to resist surveillance and censorship by an adversary with capabilities matching those of the NSA while still being easy to use.
