Peer To Peer Chat.
Relay Messenger is a secure, open-source, Peer-To-Peer group messaging app for desktop and mobile. No servers or cloud hosting is required, and no company ever handles your messages.
Messages are encrypted in transit and at rest using modern standards.
Relay runs on any OS, mobile and desktop, or in your terminal.
No cloud hosting is required. No company handles your data.
No sign-in. No sign-up. No email. No data collection.
A Feature Roadmap
Compared to Others
Most communication software relies on Cloud hosting. In
some cases, the servers needed for hosting may be run by
a random person instead of a company.
Either way, it's hard to trust it even if it's open source, because we can't see the code that's actually running on the servers.
The protocol used by Relay App, does not require servers or Cloud
services. All the code runs locally on your device or computer. You can even
The entire network is symmetrical — every peer has the same capabilities. And every peer works cooperatively to make a robust, highly available network.
Secure & Private
Other apps rely on servers or cloud
services. To preserve privacy, they route messages around a
network of servers in a way that is confusing and difficult
for an adversary to intercept and decipher.
These servers represent not only points of failure, but also an attack surface and an economic vulnerability.
Messages are sent directly between computers. When other peers are not online, or when networks make it physically impossible to communicate directly, messages are fragmented and randomly distributed across the network in a way that they can't be read by anyone else, but can be discovered and reassembled by the recipient.
Built with Socket runtime.
Build applications for any OS — desktop, mobile, even headless – with security, privacy, and peer-to-peer as first class features.
