About CryptPad

A full suite of applications

CryptPad provides a full-fledged office suite with all the tools necessary for productive collaboration. Applications include: Rich Text, Spreadsheets, Code/Markdown, Kanban, Slides, Whiteboard and Forms.

End-to-end encrypted

All data on CryptPad is encrypted in the browser. This means no readable data leaves the user's device. Even the service administrators cannot see the content of documents or user data.

Private Collaboration

CryptPad is built to enable collaboration with features such as team drives, calendar, and sharing. It synchronizes changes to documents in real time. Because all data is encrypted, the service and its administrators have no way of seeing the content being edited and stored.

Fully open-source

CryptPad is free software. Anyone can host the platform in a personal or professional capacity. The development team offers subscriptions and support contracts for ready-to-use deployments.

Public Money = Public code

CryptPad has been supported since 2016 by French and European research grants such as BPI France, NLNet Foundation, NGI Trust, Mozilla Open Source Support. We believe that public money should fund public code, so the service is fully open source. This means anyone can use, host, and modify the software.

Funded by and for users

Unlike other platforms, CryptPad does not offer "free" services to sell user-data and cash-out for its investors. Our current goal is to be fully funded by users through subscriptions and donations. There are no investors waiting to profit from user data (it's encrypted anyway), and no "exit strategy" since all the code is already in the public domain.

To keep CryptPad in development and free for everyone, you can subscribe, donate, or contribute.
