Stay safe. Stay secure. #GetSession.


Great news! Cryptomator is now finally available on Flathub as a Flatpak app. 🎉 Huge thanks to Ralph Plawetzki for his amazing contribution, which pushed this big effort across the finish line. 🚀


On top of that, utilising @Lokinet_org@twitter.com and the #OxenNetwork means that we will soon be capable of onion-routing high quality voice and video calls, something which was previously impossible.

Our mission is to revolutionise private messaging — and that's what we're doing.

Session has totally anonymous sign-up, and onion-routes your messages through a sybil-resistant, community-owned network. This means:

- It's impossible to watch the whole network 🕵️🚫
- We can't collect any metadata 💾🚫
- Sender and recipient are both totally anonymous 🥸✅

Onion-routing 🧅 means that your data is encrypted in layers, and routed through several servers within a decentralised network.

If one server knows where the data came from, it doesn't know where the data is going — and vice versa.


Show thread

Typically, message data travels from your device, to a central server, to the recipients device.

In this scenario, the path of your data can be traced by anyone who is watching the network, and whoever owns the server can collect metadata 🕵️

We wanted to improve on that.

To take your privacy to the next level, Session onion-routes all of your data.

But what does that mean exactly? And why is Session the only private messaging app that can onion-route high quality voice and video calls?

A thread 🧵


Session is decentralised.

That means it's hardened against censorship and surveillance but it also means we don't run the infrastructure — our community does.

Session is by the people, for the people.
