Hi there! This is the wiki for Tox, a distributed, secure messenger with audio and video chat capabilities. Tox isn't complete yet, but we encourage you to contribute to help us improve the project.

To navigate this wiki, start at the sitemap, and work your way down the namespaces to the section or article you're looking for. If you already have an idea about what you're looking for, use the search box at the top right of the page.

Information about editing the wiki, such as the Dokuwiki syntax, can be found in the wiki namespace.

If you want to be able to edit the wiki, please click here to register and contact the wiki administrator at wiki-admin@tox.chat to get your account approved, which is done to prevent spam bots and vandalism.

Note that registering with QQmail email doesn't work, they block all emails coming from us.


If you're interested in using Tox, check out the users namespace. Keep in mind that, just like the Tox core library, the clients are not finished, feature complete, or stable. If you encounter bugs or security vulnerabilities while using a particular client, please report them to that client's maintainer, according to the guidelines mentioned in Writing Useful Bug Reports.


If you're a developer interested in contributing to either the Tox core library, or any of the clients, check out the developers namespace.
