Install Conversations

Step-by-step guides and detailed information on secure messaging apps for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux.

First you need to choose a server to host your XMPP account. This is like choosing an email provider. Here are some lists of servers to look at, some have ratings on each server as well:

If you want a server that has a Tor hidden service see dllud’s XMPP server list.
You can check a server’s compliance with Conversation’s features at the Compliance Checker.

Each server has it’s own privacy policy and requirements to signup. Some require an email address and other don’t.

Once you have signed up at the website of an XMPP provider of your choice, now you can install Conversations. One option is to purchase it at the Google Play store, you can find a link to do so at the official website.
Or you can download a free version from FDroid.

Many common issues and questions are addressed at Conversation’s GitHub page.
