I've noticed that a pretty unsophisticated, but efficient, way of chatting with somebody without leaving any records is via TeamViewer.
What you do, is establish an Internet connection between the 2 devices with TeamViewer and then one person gets into & takes control of the computer of the other. Afterwards, you open up Notepad, for example, and then the 2 of you proceed to chat in the open .txt . When you are done, you simply don't save the file and that's it.
You conversation is not saved to be seen by anybody, provided, of course, that no-one's computer's been hacked beforehand.
That's it! :)

Well not too sure about this.

You have to download a program which being as popular as it is must be on the radar of the CIA / NSA. 

So we have no idea if it's been breached.

 

A simpler way would be one of the many encrypted OTR chat websites such as...

Have you backed up today? Did you backup your backup?

Yeah, that's why I put the word encryption in brackets in the title. It's meant more so as a funky way to escape parental control if you are a teenager or something like that. It clearly wouldn't work if you are Edward frickin' Snowden, lol. :lmao:

Well considering Yahoo was caught out taking screen grabs and screen shots of desktops of peoples cams every 5 minutes, unless you sit there sniffing each packet from an application you wouldnt be able to tell.
