Keybase launches encrypted group chat Teams

Professional chat and file sharing app Keybase has launched Teams, allowing users to engage in encrypted group chats, akin to Slack.

The more the merrier

From the creators of OkCupid and Sparknotes, Keybase’s new feature is currently in the alpha stage and entirely free, promising air-tight security even in the face of a server breach.

All files and messages shared via Teams are encrypted once sent, and though currently free to use, Keybase plans to monetise the app for business use in the future.

The security heavy initiative of Keybase could raise the apps popularity in the face of other project management apps, such as Flock, Workplace, Microsoft Teams, Stride, and Slack with its 5 million strong user base.

Project management competition

Being at the alpha stage, Keybase has some polishing yet to complete, with certain tasks, such as managing team roles, to be assigned from the command line.

Keybase’s Teams is tailored to work with online communities and companies of all sizes with the capability of supporting up to 1,000 users, with an even higher number in the future.

Teams will also be ale to allow companies working on programming to share work via an encrypted code repository.

Keybase’s new feature is available through their site and compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, Chrome, and Firefox. It looks as though Teams’ flexibility may give the heavy hitters a run for their money.
