With the ever-increasing number of online threats and data theft attempts, security has become one of the main criteria when it comes to choosing a favorite chat or file sharing tool. No one wants their conversations read by others or their files falling in the wrong hands.
Focused on security, but without neglecting functionality and speed, qTox provides a protected environment to chat with friends and business partners, share files and perform audio and video calls.
Puts the spotlight on security
As previously mentioned, the big plus of qTox is related to its security features. Using the Tox protocol and relying on powerful cryptography algorithms, it allows the sending of encrypted messages and secures connections when performing audio and video calls.
Additionally, your real identity is hidden to people who are not in your contact list and messages are not logged. In other words, qTox promises that your identity cannot be revealed to persons who don’t know your user credentials.
User-friendly layout and a secured contact list
Once you join in the Tox network and create a new profile, qTox’s main window opens. Its appearance is quite familiar; the layout is very similar to that of any IM tool: contacts and groups to the left, with the profile photo, name and status, and the chat window to the right.
Adding a new contact can be done in two different ways, either by copying and sending the automatically generated Tox ID to your friend or by sharing a QR code.
Chat, start conferences, share files and screenshots
Conversations can be enriched using the integrated emoticons, and the contact list can be easily managed.
Aiming to become an all-in-one chat and file sharing tool, qTox is not limited to sending text messages only. It allows you to share files of any type at great speed, perform audio and video calls, as well as start group conversations with an unlimited number of users. It even encloses screen capturing capabilities to help you share snapshots in a jiffy.
A feature-rich IM tool that targets data privacy more than anything
Chat tools developers often neglect security while turning their attention to functionality. qTox does not overlook privacy, but it does not neglect speed, ease of use and features either.
It offers a peer-to-peer instant messaging and conference calling tool that makes no compromises when it comes to data protection, without failing to care for a rich feature set.
