Briar is a messaging app designed for activists, journalists, and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate. Unlike traditional messaging apps, Briar doesn't rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly between the users' devices. If the internet's down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis. If the internet's up, Briar can sync via the Tor network, protecting users and their relationships from surveillance.
There will be a Briar Meetup in New York hosted by @calyxinstitute on Saturday June 9. No registration required. Just show up and meet a Briar developer.
This is a great opportunity to add more peers to your Briar contact list and try out the app with others (Android phone required).
When Saturday June 9th - 7pm Eastern time
The Calyx Institute
254 36th Street
