Secure chat system is essential for effective and efficient communication in succeeding organizations. Current ‘free’ chat systems make breach risk of confidentiality probable, and organizations lose possession of logged chat messages. Their designs are also not readily available for examination and subsequent improvement. There is therefore the need for the design and creation of a private chat system which this research addressed. Design and creation research strategy was adopted and data collection was through existing documents and structured interviews. Incremental software development method was adopted. The outcome provides secure private chat system that minimizes the breach risk of confidentiality through encryption and localization, and grants user organization possession of logged chat messages.
