Security & Privacy

By leveraging state of the art end-to-end encryption you get the control to decide who can access your data.

How is your data secured?
All notes are encrypted and a note can only be decrypted by the devices of its collaborators. In addition contact and device names are encrypted and can only be accessed by your devices. This means Serenity's servers can't decrypt any of your content. The servers only act as a transport service of encrypted data between devices.
What technology is used?
The encryption is based on the Double Ratchet Algorithm popularised by Signal. It uses the Olm and Megolm implementation which is powering the end-to-end encryption of the Matrix Protocol. Serenity's protocol is inspired by the Matrix protocol but optimized for shared data. More details on the protocol can be found in our technical documentation. The source code is Open Source and available on Github: iOS/Android/macOS clients and backend.

Sign up without an email, phone number or password

Sign up in seconds with just one click without the necessity of providing an email, phone number or password. The secret keys generated and stored on your device convert your device into the authentication mechanism with servers and collaborators.

Collaborate securely

Adding another contact only requires you to connect once by sending your contact an invitation code.

The video shows how a new contact is added and how an existing note is shared with the new contact. Furthermore the note is updated and synced to the contact's device.

Link multiple personal Devices

While it's important to collaborate with others, it's also very relevant to have your data available and securely synchronized across all your devices.
