sudo apt install python-cryptography gajim gajim-omemo gajim-plugininstaller gajim-urlimagepreview 


  • gaim-plugininstaller: Make sure you have this so you can then easily add more plugins from within gajim.
  • urlimagepreview: You want this - you might have to turn it on in the plugin settings

More download options (including Windows) are here.


Free server with secure group chat via OMEMO

You want to find a free XMPP server that is current enough to support OMEMO.

  • Register on the website of this 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 mobile client that is supposedly capable of OMEMO. It's not free. :-( But at least it's open source.

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.
