If the other person doesn't see your message, you can give them your chat link through some other channel:
Give your chat link to someone you want to chat with!
Profile photo too big: maximum size is 200KB
Save a backup of your private key first! Otherwise you can't log in back to this account.
DANGER! Private key is used to log in to your account. Don't give or show your private key to anyone else!
Public peers are automatically discoverable by people you chat with (and others).
Iris is like the messaging apps we're used to, but better.
Released under MIT license. Code: Github.
Messages are end-to-end encrypted, but message timestamps and the number of chats aren't. In a decentralized network this information is potentially available to anyone.
By looking at timestamps in chats, it is possible to guess who are chatting with each other. There are potential technical solutions to hiding the timestamps, but they are not implemented yet. It is also possible, if not trivial, to find out who are communicating with each other by monitoring data subscriptions on the decentralized database.
In that regard, Iris prioritizes decentralization and availability over perfect privacy.
Profile names, photos and online status are currently public. That can be changed when advanced group permissions are developed.
The application is an unaudited proof-of-concept implementation, so don't use it for security critical purposes.
You cannot log in again unless you have saved a copy of your private key.
