Element is a Matrix-based end-to-end encrypted messenger and collaboration app. It’s decentralised so that users can be digitally sovereign (own and control their own data). Element can be self-hosted, or through a hosting service such as Element Matrix Services. Element operates on the open Matrix network to provide interoperability between other messenger and collaboration apps. Element lets you choose where your messages are stored, putting you in control of your data. Whatever app they are using. You shouldn’t have to switch apps just because you’re talking to a different friend. Element works with all Matrix-based apps and can even bridge into proprietary messengers. It’s an open network so there’s no walled gardens.
Matrix is an open network for secure, decentralised communication, connecting 57M+ users over 80K+ deployments. Governed by The Matrix.org Foundation, the Matrix protocol is an open standard with open source implementations, supporting a vibrant developer ecosystem. Element was founded by the team behind Matrix as a way to bring it to the mainstream
We believe people should be able to talk, via the internet, with the same level of privacy as a face-to-face conversation in their own home. We believe people should be able to communicate on their own terms; securely and in control of their data. Now used by over 42 million individuals, companies and governments to protect their communication. Element is now used by German, French and US government to collaborate securely.
Universal means for everyone.
Building on the Matrix open standard for decentralised communication, we enable anyone to talk with everyone. No walled gardens, no vendor lock-in.
Secure means communication you can trust.
Only those in the conversation can see the conversation. Those in the conversation host the conversation, and keep the data. No service provider keeping tabs and no eavesdroppers.
Collaboration means getting things done.
From arranging family holidays, to building an open source project or delivering complex projects at work - everything is quicker when people work well together.
