We are working to create a world in which every internet user can securely access all their data from all their devices, and share that data with whomever they choose, all without trusting intermediaries not to spy on them, for free.
Given that privacy is a fundamental human right enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this is simply how the world should be.
That's why we're building CrypTag, which aims to enable exactly this on desktop and on mobile... and that's just the beginning (see below).
A command line-based version of CrypTag was unveiled at DEF CON, "the world's largest underground hacker conference", in August of 2015. Since then we've been hard at work refining the technology to let you store your data anywhere (e.g., in Dropbox or Sandstorm), and to access your data from mobile (beginning with Ubuntu Phone). We're now getting started on creating the sharing functionality as well as a desktop app for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
For this technology to be trustworthy, it must be open source. And for the most vulnerable people in our society who need privacy the most to afford it -- activists, journalists, whistle-blowers, and so on -- it must be free.
First and foremost, we need your support to create an easy-to-use desktop app for all!
But we're not stopping there. CrypTag's underlying technology, which both encrypts your data and makes it searchable by tags you create or that are automatically added (e.g., you tag your pictures of Paris with "paris", and CrypTag automatically adds the tag "picture" to all your photos, so you can later search for "photos of Paris"), makes it possible to make software that is privacy-respecting that normally couldn't be, like group password managers, task management apps, and more.
