SimpleX Chat: Secure E2E chat without user identifiers, with local encrypted database and optional server self host - v4 release
SimpleX Chat is **the first messaging platform that has no user identifiers**, not even random numbers. The messages are e2e encrypted, and the servers and network observers cannot see users' contacts or groups. You can use the servers pre-configured in the apps or [host your own](https://github.com/simplex-chat/simplexmq#deploy-smp-server-on-linux). ## What's new in v4: * local database encryption with passphrase. * improved stability of chat groups, file transfers and message delivery. * you can now use your own WebRTC ICE servers for audio-video calls. * German language in the interface. * TypeScript SDK for SimpleX Chat integrations. See full [release announcement](https://github.com/simplex-chat/simplex-chat/blob/stable/blog/20220928-simplex-chat-v4-encrypted-database.md) for more details. Download the apps via the links in our GitHub repo: [https://github.com/simplex-chat/simplex-chat#readme](https://github.com/simplex-chat/simplex-chat#readme). Also, they are hosting **the event on Discord on October 6**, at 6pm UK / 10am PT - the same day when they kick off independent implementation audit - you can join via [this link](https://discord.gg/xmY76gCz?event=1024632780023402506) to: * learn how SimpleX Chat is different and why it provides better meta-data privacy than alternatives, * hear about future platform development plans, * ask any questions, * criticize what we do, * suggest improvements. Once you install the app you can choose "Connect to developers" to ask any questions, suggest new features and to join the group of users. ## About SimpleX Platform Some links to answer the most common questions: [How can SimpleX deliver messages without user identifiers](https://github.com/simplex-chat/simplex-chat/blob/stable/blog/20220511-simplex-chat-v2-images-files.md#the-first-messaging-platform-without-user-identifiers). [What are the risks to have identifiers assigned to the users](https://github.com/simplex-chat/simplex-chat/blob/stable/blog/20220711-simplex-chat-v3-released-ios-notifications-audio-video-calls-database-export-import-protocol-improvements.md#why-having-users-identifiers-is-bad-for-the-users).

Biometrics + AI + Fear converging into a perfect storm for the very idea of "public" events. It sucks!

I got some questions related to Tor:
How does it work, that Tor Project alone says which nodes/ Relays are malicious? How many bad/malicious Nodes are there in Tor? Are there good guesses? Why does almost noone use my Snowflake Proxy which i got in my browser as an extension? Is Tor going to implement fake traffic, so global surveilleince can’t break Tor easily because of the similarities of the traffic?
