Skype sold us out. F*ck them.

The NY Times reported that Skype assembled a secret internal team codenamed “Project Chess” to make spying on voice and video calls easy for the U.S. Government. Now, the Guardian reports thats Skype was working to help NSA spies, months before even receiving a court order.

Skype was handing over your calls to the government before they were even asked. But there's an alternative.

We encourage you to try out ChatB, a free, private, Skype-alternative that you can use every day.

Make the switch

Skype's owners went out of their way to betray you. Don't stand for it.

"According to the NSA documents, work had begun on smoothly integrating Skype into Prism in November 2010, but it was not until 4 February 2011 that the company was served with a directive to comply signed by the attorney general." --The Guardian

Do the math. Skype doesn't care about your privacy. They're just protecting their profits. Let's make something awesome that we can use instead.
