Privacy Policy

This is aimed to be the world's simplest privacy policy. This document should explain to you why the app collects some information, what happens when your account is deleted and some other frequently asked questions answered regarding your privacy.

If you have any more questions, please raise an issue regarding the same on our Issue Tracker and I'll answer as honest and quickly as possible :)

What identifiable information is stored about me?

Your desired username or alias and your domain name. This information is stored in your client aid in identifying who you are and to indicate to peers whom they are communicating with. Your `@` is known as your Salty Address and is also published to a broker by taking a SHA256 hash of the address and using this hash to publish your public keys for discovery purposes.

How is this all free? There must be a catch!

Absolutely no catch to this freebie. This project is just my way of giving back to the community that I've learned so much from. If you'd like to show your appreciation however, you can follow me on my social media and let me know how much it helped you, or donate to help pay the cloud bills, or if you are a fellow developer, you can head to and contribute to the code by raising a PR.
