Dear users,

Cryptocat began in 2011 as an experiment in making secure messaging more accessible. In the eight ensuing years, Cryptocat served hundreds of thousands of users and developed a great story to tell.

Now, I have moved on in my life to other things and no longer have time to maintain this project. Cryptocat users deserve a maintained secure messenger, which is why I recommend Wire.

The Cryptocat source code is still published on GitHub under the GPL version 3 license.

Furthermore, this domain name,, is for sale.

Thank you for your support during Cryptocat's lifetime.

Nadim Kobeissi
