WARNING: New report shows Cryptocat has too many design flaws as to be safe to use: http://isecpartners.github.io/publications/iSEC_Cryptocat_iOS.pdf Check out 1.3 Findings Summary The practical security of CryptoCat on all platforms, at time of review, is currently equivalent to a standard XMPP client without OTR and falls short of the security provided by an XMPP client with OTR.
