Skriva was built on existing source code from Conversations.im. Due to the GPLv3 license Skriva is forced to make its source code publicly available. Don't trust what you see. Check the code for yourself or use a custom client instead. Be sure to check out Conversations.im and of course our GitHub repo.
Security and privacy was our major concern, which led us to force all clients into the use of OMEMO. Do no longer fear that anyone can read your messages. Thanks to OMEMO you are secured through one of the most secure and modern encryptions available. Furthermore Skriva allows you to connect over ORBOT instead!
We say no to servers based in countries without appropiate privacy laws! Instead we obey to European standards and run all our servers within the EU. As of now we are running four servers in total. Two for the database, and two for XMPP.
Unlike its concurrents Skriva is free to use and finances itself only over donations.
All our finances and business strategy are handled 100% transparent.
Understand where our income comes from and on what we are spending it.
No complicated gestures or complex menus.
Skriva is straight forward and fully user orientered.
Run multiple accounts at once, use a dark theme instead, mute unknown contacts and many more features are waiting for you.
Skriva was made to serve your needs!
To transport your messages we are using the XMPP protocol, which has been developed in 1998 and releaed one year after as "Jabber".
Since October 2004 XMPP is an official IETF standard, making it one of the oldest, yet most reliable protocols available.
Server sided we are using Prosody, which is configured to be fully XMPP compliant.
