What makes Tox different?

Tox is made by the people who use it — people fed up with the existing options that spy on us, track us, censor us, and keep us from innovating.

There are no corporate interests, and no hidden agendas. Just the simplicity and functionality that are set free when people truly want to connect.

Encrypted

Everything you do with Tox is encrypted using open-source libraries. The only people who can see your conversations are the people you're talking with.

Distributed

Tox has no central servers that can be raided, shut down, or forced to turn over data — the network is made up of its users. Say goodbye to server outages!

Free

Tox is free software. That's free as in freedom, as well as in price. This means Tox is yours — to use, modify, and share — because Tox is developed by and for the users.
