The NSA scandal has become known that the American security service on a large scale, the online traffic of internet users worldwide aftapt.
As a reaction to this there are new services that listen in precisely more difficult, and thus help to protect your privacy. An example of this is the free chat client of BitTorrent Chat.

Via large companies such as Facebook, Google and Microsoft are messages that are sent and files that are stored online directly monitored by the American security service. This happened also without concrete suspicions. A lot of people are this shaken up about the consequences, which are all stored online information can have for the privacy.

This is for American and other government departments, more difficult is made for personal data to be intercepted. The messages are, moreover, via a peer-to-peer network and not via a central server sent. This way the decentralised exchange of information is the BitTorrent protocol used.
The service is free and unlimited to use, and is currently only available for users that are admitted to the alpha test phase. It is not yet known whether or not the client also as an app for mobile devices will be offered.
