Ricochet is a different approach to instant messaging that doesn’t trust anyone
in protecting your privacy.

  • Eliminate metadata. Nobody knows who you are, who you talk to, or what you say.
  • Stay anonymous. Share what you want, without sharing your identity and location.
  • Nobody in the middle. There are no servers to monitor, censor, or hack.
  • Safe by default. Security isn’t secure until it’s automatic and easy to use.

To install Ricochet IM (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install ricochet

To upgrade Ricochet IM (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade ricochet
