Trillian Secure ICQ And AIM Messages With Off-The-Record Messaging

One thing most people do not realize is the fact that sending Instant Messages over the Internet is not secure. Every time you speak with someone you risk the chance of someone listening in on those conversations. Especially now a days with so many wireless networks hackers can easily join networks and grab all of the data off those networks. There is any easy way to encrypt your AOL Instant Messenger and ICQ by using a plugin for Trillian. You can also encrypt either one if not using Trillian which is briefly discussed below. Follow these steps to install Off-The-Record Proxy and configure Trillian to use it to encrypt your messages to other users who also have the software installed. The below steps were performed on a laptop running Windows XP Professional 32-Bit.
