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.

Reviews From google play store

All Chinese should use it. Could you add a recommended public fans page or chatting room so people can see the real news and make friends when open the app without any background knowledge? So ppl will use the app to see news.

... Critical permissions should be justifiable... It's highly unusual for me to download an app b4 reading the permissions requested. Maybe explain the reason for the permissions in the description. A user's decision to grant app permissions should be a thought out process. I'm sure you appreciated my question. Thanks.

Generally good, little problems with optimization here and there. Major downside is that when someone sends a request, you don't receive a notification or something in the app telling you of its existence, although I can see why it was done this way.

The connection via link sharing does not work. I've tried several times with vpn and without vpn. Please take some measures regarding the issue as we are in dire need of using the app. Thanks. I'll give you 5 stars as soon as the issue will be removed.

This app is the best I've seen among all mesh net based messaging apps. It's open source AND p2p, well done.. The perfect solution I was looking for. I'm very thankful to people who developed this. These guys are great

Works fantastic. Didn't try the Bluetooth connecting but connecting via Tor (works automatically if you don't know what that is) works like a charm.

Chat is not working contacts can be addded easily but messages are not being sent!!! Fix this please!! The app has a lot of potential, you can improve it!

Can't change Name afterwards, otherwise its nice and smooth. Have to type my password all the time. No option to have an Autologin.

No ability to delete messages (haven't tried - may be they are deleted once account is removed); apparantly no ability to share files.

You can't create an account unless you give it permission to stay connected in the background. i want it to have control over that, it seems a little shady
