Alkemi is both a Windows desktop and Android application that lets you use email, instant messenger, text messaging, forum posts, blogs, even Twitter to have clear-text conversations with others but keeps anyone without your permission from being able to know what you said.

ALKEMI keeps private communications private.

ALKEMI does not keep a history, does not contact the Internet, and there is no backdoor.

ALKEMI is not Government-approved. Or, as far as I know, Government-disapproved.

New Alkemi 5.6 for Windows is now available.

It lets you open and save both Original Text and Alkemized Text data.

And now you can run it as a Command Line app.

With Alkemi you can work in English, Hindi, Chinese (simplified and traditional),
Japanese, French, Russian, Spanish, Arabic and German.

You can download the zip file

Version 5.6 lets you also run it from the Command Line.

Use the Microsoft app FCIV to validate that the file downloaded from here is the file I put here.
The FCIV output for Alkemi.zip is:

// File Checksum Integrity Verifier version 2.05.

Step One: Put text into the Original Text Box.
You can type it in or paste from some source. Any language is OK.
Any character set, like English, Chinese, Arabic, Hindi, and others, are OK.

You can mix them up. It doen't matter to Alkemi.

Step Two: Click on Set Key and add a key.
The key is just letters and numbers.
Again, like in Step 1, any language is OK, any character set is OK.
You can also mix them up if you want.

Step Three: Click the Alkemize button.

That's it! I hope you get good use from Alkemi.

Please let me know your impressions.

If you find my translations seriously amiss, I would greatly appreciate your letting me know.
