Keybase has unveiled a Slack-style team messaging service that promises to protect private communications with end-to-end encryption.
The company launched in 2015 with the aim of making encryption technology more accessible to consumers. Its latest service, Keybase Teams, has a look similar to Slack with features such as chat rooms and channels. Admins can add set up groups of users to work on a particular project, and encrypted files can be uploaded and shared.
An early release version of the software is now available for download for desktops and mobile devices.
The key advantage, Keybase said, involves enhanced security and privacy.
