What is Jabber?

Instant messaging (IM) is a type of online chat which offers real-time text transmission over the Internet one-by-one and also for groups.

The advantage of Jabber over other protocols (like MSN, Skype etc.) is, that it is openly specified and decentralized, which means it cannot be censored or monopolized.

How to use?

Most Jabber servers allow the registration of new accounts. This is usually done directly in the jabber client (see also brief#chat)).

Need an account?

There are many sites that offer jabber accounts, see the lists at omemo.im or jabber.at

Here are some Jabber servers that offer a Tor hidden service:
