Keybase is the best and secure messaging and file-sharing app which is supported on Android, iOS, macOS, and Linux. It has a built-in Stellar wallet where you can securely store, receive, and send your XLM balance. It is completely free to use and another interesting fact is, this app does not show any sorts of aggressive ads to irritate you while using.

Some of the interesting facts about Keybase:-

  • Last time Keybased launched one of the biggest airdrop named "The Big Stellar Space Drop" with the help of SDF(Stellar Development Foundation).
  • It is an open-source platform you can check here https://github.com/keybase/client
  • It has more than 407,163 active users from all around the world 
  • It supports different wallet addresses like Bitcoin, Zcash, and Stellar, etc
  • On May 7, 2020, Keybase was acquired by Zoom Video Communications

 

Advantages over other similar Apps
This app has so many exceptional features. If you are concerned about the security of your personal chatting messages, it can be the best option for you because all messages are secure, end-to-end encrypted. The developer team has a long story behind it. They have worked very hard to make it the best messaging app. You can also check it to feel the difference. By using the Keybase app, you can write securely to any twitter, Reddit, Facebook, GitHub, and hacker news user. It supports multi-device: your messages survive and transfer with encryption to new phones & computers.

Brief instructions for use

  • First of all, decide on which device are you planning to install Keybase software. I have included download links for some major OS below.
  • Now, install the app on your device
  • Sign up for an account it is easier to do
  • Fill in your profile with the required information and Prove ownership of other supported accounts(social media accounts) / websites inside the app.
  • At last, do not forget to create a paper key which is very important to access your account in the future. I suggest you create at least one paper key and link your account with another device say your PC. 

 

(Note:-Myself, I have tested this app. If you have any doubts and questions, you might ask me questions on this topic. Thanks for your time😊.)

I did use keybase months ago for a supposed XLM airdrop that I never got. Basically I liked the app and I did spend enough time to make everything as required, but in the end they gave me nothing. I know that they were overrun by scammers trying to profit from the airdrop, and I was not in the countries they banned from participating for this reason. Anyay I deleted the app disgruntled.

I'm impressed by this one though. It seems that they had a good plan and they managed to boost numbers so much that they probably made many millions.

@BTC Future Fortunately, I was an early bird to receive more than $100 worth of free XLM. I still have 90% XLM holdings in my native XLM wallet on Keybase. Sadly,scammers came at the end otherwise they had a long plan to give free XLM to everyone. One of a developer Chris Coyne is very active on Twitter. He has said like they are launching soon some of the best campaigns to encourage so many Keybase users. You, as the best pal on this forum, I also recommend you to follow SDF and Keybase not to miss a single opportunity. I have been still using desktop version of Keybase which is insanely the best to have more secure conversation with dearest one 😉

Oh they have a desktop version? I will try it out then. Thanks @Whited35 ! I admit that the mobile app was looking good.
