Encrypted by Default

Encryption is at the core of BeeChat. It has the fastest, most secure encryption algorithm of any chat app. Unlike Telegram or Signal, the messages are never stored on any server before being sent to the recipient. There is no central authority that can ban a message or user.

How BeeChat's Encryption works

Mesh Network

BeeChat Network is based on the ZigBee standard. If two devices are too far apart from each other, other devices can act as bridges to connect the two, without being able to read the content of the message itself.
