    IM Encryption Questions

    Hey guys. I got a couple of questions on Instant Messaging encryption.

    1. If I use something like IM Secure by ZoneLabs, does the person I'm talking to need to have the program in order to receive my messages?

    2. I use a home computer, I'm not connected to any other PCs on a network. Is it really important to encrypt IM conversations if you're not on a network?

    Thanks in advance

    Will secure im transmissions between any two IMSecure installs.

    Both sides need it.

    The info is on their website...Just an FYI..


    Also, if you are on the Internet (the largest untrusted network of them all) and you think you need to encrypt your communications, then probably yes.

    Cheers,
