aTox, a beautiful and modern Tox client.



aTox is a free open-source messaging app for the Tox protocol.



Why aTox?



  • Open-source: free to share, inspect, and change as you like.

  • Reasonable: sane defaults, no guesses about what you care about, doesn't ignore what you want.

  • End-to-end encrypted: the only people who can see your conversations are the people you're talking to.

  • Distributed: no central servers that can be taken down or compelled to turn over data.

  • Lightweight: no telemetry, ads, or other forms of monitoring.
