33 sec read

For those of you who value privacy in a post-Snowden world, Kim Dotcom’s encrypted VoIP may be the service for you. While it’s no secret that services like services like Skype are pretty much an open book for government agencies, MegaChat is specifically designed so that no such surveillance can occur.

It’s about a year late, but Kim Dotcom’s encrypted audio and video calling service has finally arrived. Dotcom and the Mega Conspiracy Team announced on Thursday that MegaChat has officially entered public beta, allowing users to place video calls and share files with their contacts over a secure line. According to Dotcom, the beta will be released in phases. Video calling has already been implemented into the service, while text chat and video conferencing are coming soon. Even with a limited feature set, Dotcom says that users have already placed over 500,000 calls in the hours since the service went live.
