BeeBEEP overview

BeeBEEP is a free open-source office messaging application that does not need an external server to let users communicate with each other.

Messages are encrypted and delivered directly to the recipient, without intermediaries, through one of the block encryption algorithms safest in the world: BeeBEEP uses Rijndael, known by many as AES, with a random 256-bit key generated for every single point-to-point connection that is made.

In your office, in your laboratory, at school, at home, in the hospital or in any other activity having the need for security and privacy, BeeBEEP is the best way to keep your private messages safe.

The BeeBEEP source code is open to everyone and you can always check that what I'm telling you is the truth

  • Easy installation
  • No server required
  • Encrypted peer-to-peer communications
