Briar is the prototype of an alternative to email, blogs and message boards so journalists, activists and civil society groups can communicate safely, freely and fearlessly with one another without concerns around government censorship or surveillance. It transfers encrypted data between devices, not servers, so users can build their own secure autonomous communication networks, running on anything from Bluetooth to memory sticks.
