Ricochet uses the Tor network to reach your contacts without relying on messaging servers. It creates a hidden servicewhich is used to rendezvous with your contacts without revealing your location or IP address. Instead of a username, you get a unique address that looks like ricochet:rs7ce36jsj24ogfw.
Other Ricochet users can use this address to send a chat request - asking to be added to your contacts list. You can see anonymous your contacts are online, and send them messages and soon, files!
Your list of contacts is only known to your computer - never exposed to servers or network anonymous monitoring. Ricochet is an chat. Security and anonymity are difficult topics, and you should carefully evaluate your risks and exposure with any software.
There will be problems.
