Do you IM?
Do you use Windows?
Okay, then, this is for you. Thanks to those brilliant boys at Freedom Feens, you’ve now got an EZ tutorial for encrypting your instant messages with OTR (Off-the-Record) Pidgin.
The tutorial is long. But that’s because its steps are so comprehensive. They’ve been vetted and foolproofed.
I dislike instant messaging. Life (and the ‘Net) have enough other disruptions without that. I know I’m in the minority, though. And Michael W. Dean, who wrote the tutorial, points out its privacy advantages over email when done right. Then he shows Windows users exactly how to do it right. Full-service privacy protection!
