Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and the right to privacy are among the most important civil liberties in a free society. With this project we empower you to exchange information over the internet in truly secure and private way. This product is made in a way that respects people's integrity and privacy all the way. We have no interest in you! Not in you as a person, nor in your secrets. Read more on our Privacy page.
The main reason we offer accounts is to prevent spam and fraud. All core features are free of charge and don't require an account.
That said, some features do require basic authentication (We just ask for an email address - we don't mind you using a temporary email address). These features include sending information via email or SMS. Accounts help us prevent abuse of the underlying systems.
Paid premium accounts are meant for power users and people who like to support this project.
With our developer tools you can easily integrate this service into your own projects. We offer a public API together with client-side packages that handle end-to-end-encryption.
