The most secure messaging app

All around the world, users turn to Flap to have open and authentic conversations with their friends, family and colleagues. With Flap you can rest assured, knowing that your personal chats are always protected and private and that all your conversations are your own. Our mission is to protect that privacy so you never have to think twice about what you can or can’t share when you’re using Flap.

We don’t read or listen to any of your chats and calls

Unlike other messaging apps, Flap can’t read your personal chats or listen in on your audio or video calls. We can’t access your messages since we use encryption by default. You don’t have to go out of your way to turn it on. This means that your private communications are completely encrypted so that only you and the people you’re talking to can read or hear them.

We can’t and don’t sell your content

When your chats are protected by encryption, no one can access them. Perhaps most importantly, Flap doesn’t have access to them—which means nothing you share can be used to target you with ads later. This means that some of these apps can access, read and sell your private conversations with other 3rd parties or advertisers. Flap policy guarantees that we can’t sell your private information since we chose to have no access to your private chats and calls in the first place. So, you can be sure you won’t mysteriously see ads related to something you were just talking about with a friend on Flap.

More than encryption

Not only are your communications protected by end-to-end encryption by default, nothing you share is ever stored on Flap servers once delivered. The messages you send make their way from your device to the recipient’s as an encrypted code. If the recipient’s phone is off or they don’t have an internet connection, for example, your message will wait patiently on Flap servers for a limited time—still safe and encrypted—until their device is prepared to receive and decrypt it.
