Session is the new kid on the messaging app block, offering users anonymous and secure messaging. Session’s focus on onion-routing, end-to-end encryption, and no-phone-number sign-up are important for people who require anonymity (eg. whistleblowers and other at-risk communities). This session on Session will introduce the application, guide participants through onboarding, and get people communicating. We’ll also discuss other features and provide details about future development. Importantly, the team behind Session is looking forward to feedback from digital security trainers and the broader digital rights community about Session, and other features that could make the app even more useful to at-risk communities.
