Gaim lets you encrypt your IMs, of course so does Skype

by Tris Hussey on January 24th, 2007

Gina on LifeHacker tells you how to encrypt your IM conversations using the universal IM client Gaim.  It’s simple, easy and … both of you need to be using Gaim for it to work.  I have a love-hate relationship with trying to encrypt IM.  I think one reason that I like Skype is that everything is just encrypted by default, I don’t have to think about it or do anything.

The next question is, do you need to?  Ah a long philosophical discussion there.  Let’s just say that if you really, really feel that your IM needs to be secure all the time, maybe IM isn’t the right way to communicate.
