About


You control your chat – SimpleX platform has no access to your connection graph!

🖲 Protects your messages and metadata - who you talk to and when.
🔐 Double ratchet encryption.
📱 Mobile apps for Android (Google Play, APK) and iOS.
🚀 TestFlight preview for iOS with the new features 1-2 weeks earlier - limited to 10,000 users!
🖥 Available as a terminal (console) app / CLI on Linux, MacOS, Windows.
 
Main advantages over other chat/messaging platforms:
- it does not use any global user identities - no phone numbers, emails, usernames, unique identifiers; there is nothing that would allow the network servers to aggregate the communications of users and have visibility of the graph of their contacts, unlike other chat solutions.
- it uses new client-server network topology and message routing protocol - it's neither federated nor P2P, combining the advantages and avoiding the downsides of both (it’s covered here: https://github.com/simplex-chat/simplex-chat#network-topology).
- it has no dependence on DNS for the core network; DNS will be used in the future for optional public addresses and discovery to establish the initial connection, but the message routing will not depend on DNS-based user addresses (unlike email, XMPP or Matrix).
