Legacy Ricochet Refresh

Ricochet Refresh (Legacy)

On this page you can download the old (legacy) version of Ricochet Refresh. This version is no longer supported and should only be downloaded by those trying to communicate with a user who has not yet upgraded to Ricochet Refresh V3. This version of Ricochet Refresh will stop functioning once tor's support for v2 onion services ends in October 2021. You must upgrade to Ricochet Refresh V3 before that date to be able to continue to communicate.

Legacy Ricochet Refresh has a pre-release for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. We have included tor in the release.
