==== Free server with secure group chat via OMEMO ====
You want to find a [https://list.jabber.at/ free XMPP server] that is current enough to support OMEMO.
* Register on the website of this [https://hookipa.net/register xmpp.social] server.
* Add an account for it to Gajim, and connect.
* Create a new room!  Set a password.  Check members-only.  You should be able to then turn on OMEMO!
==== Run your own server ====
==== XMPP mobile client ====
There's a [https://conversations.im/ mobile client] that is really nice, and capable of OMEMO.  It's not free.  :-(  But at least it's open source.
Also found a [https://hookipa.net/en/documentation/siskin-im/ mac client] (untested).
==== Incabable XMPP servers ====
On these (older?) servers, Gajim always says "group must be non-anonymous and member-only" even though I'd set it that way.
