X-IM is a free Secure Instant Messaging (IM) and Chat program which lets you communicate with anyone on the Internet securely, using 256-bit Strong Encryption.

Standard Features

o Secure Instant Messaging – Send instant messages to any other X-IM user. If the remote user is not online (or has their computer off, etc.) the message will be held until the user goes online, at which time it will be delivered immediately. From inception to delivery the message is encrypted with the recipient’s public key, making it impossible for anyone but the recipient to read the message.
o Firewall Compatibility – X-IM is designed to automatically connect you with your contacts regardless of your type of Internet connection, and is compatible with the vast majority of firewall configurations.
o Secure Chat – The chat feature allows two, three, or more users to communicate to each other in persistent window, with all the same security features as X-IM Instant Messages. This is ideal for encrypted group conversations between three or more users. Firewall Compatibility – X-IM is designed to automatically connect you with your contacts regardless of your type of Internet connection, and is compatible with the vast majority of firewall configurations.
o Digital Signatures and Hash Protection - All X-IM communications, besides being digitally encrypted to prevent unauthorized viewing, are also digitally signed and protected by secure hash to prevent the forging or altering of any type of X-IM message.
o Message Filtering – Automatically filter out messages from designated users, or opt to only receive messages from users already on your contact list.

Pro Features

o Secure File Transfer – Securely send files to your contacts. This allows you to securely transmit things like sensitive spreadsheets, Word documents, images, etc. As with instant messages, if your recipient is not online, these transmissions will be held on X-IM’s secure server and delivered as soon as the recipient is available. (Remember, as with all X-IM transmissions, the document is always encrypted before the transmission begins, and is held on our secure server in its encrypted form. No one but the specified recipient can decrypt and read the document; we at X-IM are never capable of accessing any unencrypted information sent by our users.)
o Secure Memos – Secure memos are like secure instant messages, except that there is no length limitation, and they can be retained locally by the recipient indefinitely. This makes them very convenient for sensitive information that needs to be retained, like account numbers, passwords, schedules, etc.
o Digitally signed documents – This feature automatically applies your digital signature to any memos or files you send. This gives the recipient proof that the document or message came from you and has not been altered since it was sent.
o Compact Size and No Ads – The Pro Version doesn’t display the ads which pay for the free version. This frees up room on the screen and provides more room for the information that you want to see.
o Standard Version Compatibility – This means that you can use these Pro features with all your contacts, regardless of whether they have the Pro or Standard Version of X-IM. (In other words, both versions can receive Memos and Files, but only the Pro Version can send Memos and Files.)
