Download CoyIM

CoyIM is a new chat client that is safe and secure by default: no settings to change, no plugins to install, no configuration to change.

Step #1

Install Tor

Tor is a free software for enabling anonymous communication. It prevents someone who is watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit and also prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.
