Cryptocat Editor's review staff/ April 21, 2013

Users who have privacy concerns with major chat program providers may want an alternative that protects their information. Cryptocat for Mac purports to keep chat information encrypted, but its absence of other users makes it an ineffective choice for most.

As with most Mac App downloads, Cryptocat for Mac installed quickly and without any issues. There were no user instructions available, and it was not clear if there was any technical support. The application's interface was dated and difficult to interpret. Users can set up their own chat rooms to send to their friends or enter a lobby area where they can supposedly link up with random users. The program states that all chat entries are encrypted and not saved, which makes it attractive for those concerned about privacy issues. To enter the chat lobby, the user must physically type that into the network bar. A simple button for this option would have been useful. Once we were in the lobby, there were no other users available, which was a disappointment. The program would not be useful for those looking to find other users for chatting; but those with existing contacts could use the application to chat in a separate area.
