Free and Open Source Friend-To-Friend and Secure Decentralized Communication Platform that Will Help You Chat and Share Files with Your Friends

Retroshare is a straightforward macOS application that provides the necessary tools to securely communicate yours with friends and family.

In addition, Retroshare enables its users to share files, pictures, video clips, music and more with great ease.

Moreover, the Retroshare macOS utility uses a web-of-trust in order to authenticate users and an OpenSSL to encrypt all communication.

This means that Retroshare will automatically encrypt all file transfers between you and your friends, as well as chat messages for increased privacy and security.

Retroshare also comes with support for the DHT decentralized distributed system, designed to provide its users with a lookup service similar to a hash table for greater autonomy and decentralization, as well as increased scalability and fault tolerance.

Furthermore, while using Retroshare to share files with your friends you can perform multiple uploads and downloads at the same time, and take advantage of its built-in support for UPnP / NAT-PMP port forwarding to traverse a network gateway, such as a firewall or router effortlessly.
