Cryptodog is a community-developed fork of the original Cryptocat browser extension, which was discontinued in February 2016. With Cryptodog, you can join group discussions, send private messages, and share files without any extra work. Getting started is easy. Just enter a room name, choose a nickname, and click Connect. Or, join the room "lobby" to meet new people. Like Cryptocat, Cryptodog is experimental software. It is suitable for educational and casual purposes only. Do not use Cryptodog if you have a critical need for anonymity or privacy. This includes abuse victims, activists, journalists, sources, and citizens of oppressive countries. If in doubt, use a vetted secure messenger like Signal or WhatsApp.
