Hi, I am overwhelmed trying to learn about the safest ways of online instant communication.
I am interested in two things:
1) The safest method(s) of instant communication with one person, such as the safest IM
2) The safest method(s) of instant communication with several people, such as the safest chat room or whatever else a person would use
I've seen that a lot of experienced people use things like IRC, GitHUb and such, but it is a lot of information to learn quickly for someone with no programming, networking or security background.
I'm willing to do the work. I enjoy learning very much. I just don't know where to start.
I want to make sure I know what I'm doing so I don't end up with a bleeping computer lol.
