Session is a free open source encrypted private messaging app for Linux, Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS. All session accounts are completely anonymous. It removes all sensitive metadata collections from your message. You don’t need a phone number or email to sign up and create a new session ID. According to the session, it doesn’t collect any data, so nothing leaks. All messages are sent over the onion routing network.
Using a distributed server network, the messages are completely anonymous and come with IP address protection. We currently support group chats for up to 100 people. Share voice snippets, photos and files. You can sync all your messages with all your devices.
