The Signal messenger and protocol.

Molly is FOSS fork of Signal that adds security and privacy features. They are now developing their own completely anonymous and decentralized, secure messenger.

Signal's servers are no longer open source for anti-spam reasons.
> We build Signal in the open, with publicly available source code for our applications and servers. To keep Signal a free global communication service without spam, we must depart from our totally-open posture and develop one piece of the server in private: a system for detecting and disrupting spam campaigns. Unlike encryption protocols, which are designed to be provably secure even if everyone knows how they work, spam detection is an ongoing chore for which there is no concrete resolution and for which transparency is a major disadvantage.
