ChatSecure for Android v14 is FINALLY here!

I am so happy to announce that ChatSecure for Android v14 IS FINALLY HERE!

BUT This is our first “release candidate” of v14 for public use, and while we love it dearly, you may want to wait for 14.0.1 for us to work out any hiccups.

The update should be out on Google Play shortly, and FDroid in the next few days. Otherwise, you can always download the APK direct from us:



* Major UI update for fun and enjoyment!
* Easy to add and verify new contacts with QR codes
* Improved encrypted file sharing!
* Updated SSL/TLS settings and secure code libraries
* 20% reduction in size!

PLEASE CONTACT US with any upgrade problems!

Full changelog for all the v13/v14 work is here:

    Thanks for all your hard work! I use your F-Droid repo all the time, it’s a shame more developers don’t take advantage of it. *cough cough* open whispersystems *cough cough*

    Great, new version!

    But why does Chatsecure now request permission to modify app ops statistics?

    As the permission description says there’s no reason to request it for a normal app, so it seems kinda shady for Chatsecure to try to manipulate them.

    Hello I have got a problem with updating via f-droid. Your repository at shows 13.1.3-BETA-2 as the newest version available. No 14.x.x anywhere. Sure I could download the newest apk directly from here, but that gets tedious to check your site constantly for updates instead of letting f-droid do the work.
