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.
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.
CryptPad is built to enable collaboration. 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.
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.
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.
