Did they fix the DNS leak that deanonymizes connections through Tor?

Afaik qTox hasn't. You can still use Torsocks or Whonix to mitigate. It uses encryptet DHT, much similar to bittorrent. Known issues: Connects without proxy settings on first run. https://github.com/qTox/qTox/issues/2070 No "Tor mode" https://github.com/qTox/qTox/issues/1350 Leaks UDP unless configured to not do so. https://github.com/qTox/qTox/issues/3779

I don't know man, she doesn't like to talk about it. Possibly due to a negative self-image or mild depression. Or it could be an undiagnosed anxiety disorder. Who knows.

It protects only location. All other: metadata, contacts - are unprotected. This is just a toy, like "Skype over Tor".

What about.. keybase.io

This sucks even more - the pillar of its "security" is some social website controlled by its owners, not its users.

It's only a front end that makes it easier to use PGP. What's to suck?

The app is meant for security, not complete network privacy, you can just use a VPN if you don't want your ISP to know. The only thing it exposes over the wire is the fact you are using Tox, and a bunch of encrypted packets no one can read. If you reall want to confuse them, use Toxic and run a relay, data poison them.

not True.. Your contacts aren't public, there's some metadata.. and it doesn't protect your location
