There is a growing concern about one’s privacy when it comes to, for example, our smart phones. Smart phone manufactures like Apple and Android do, without your permission via an Apple or Android ID, track your every movement. The Apple and Android operating systems were, for example, used to track and then indict thousands of those who took part in the January 6th, 2021 rally in Washington, D.C. by the federal government and its agencies using “Geofencing.”
Watch this Brax.me video on how your smart phone is being tracked and your privacy violated every second of every day, even if your phone is turned off.
Brax.me states on its website,
BRAX.ME IS COMMITTED TO PRIVACY
First and foremost, we are committed to preserving privacy. The famous social media platforms, like Facebook, squeeze out every aspect of your true identity, and profile your every move online, even when you are not on their app. None of that will happen here.
YOUR IDENTITY IS NOT REQUIRED
For social interaction inside the app, we do not require your identity. Even email is optional. We have no records of IP Addresses. We offer you options to post anonymously.
PRIVATE CHATS AND BLOGS
Your purpose in a social media app is to socialize! You can do so freely. You can create your own blogs about any subject and you can talk to all the people you know, or meet them in public spaces. Your messages to each other are always encrypted.
The app utilizes forward secrecy for encryption. While encryption isn’t necessary for public areas on Brax.Me, we fully encrypt all conversations everywhere to prevent a hacker or third party from breaking into our database.
YOUR OWN PRIVATE KEY FOR CHAT
You have the option of using an additional key for chat that ensures no one can decrypt your messages in our database. Only you and people in the chat can see the conversation.
ENCRYPTED CLOUD STORAGE
We offer you the ability to store unlimited photos for free. File storage and file downloading bandwidth is available up to 4GB for a free tier.
This platform is completely open and the non-enterprise version is licensed under GPLV3. Open source at Github Rob Braxman.
UNIVERSAL DEVICE SUPPORT
Our app runs on iOS, Android, and any browser. This means it runs universally on any computing platform, mobile or desktop. If you want to install Brax.Me on an Android without a store, the APK file is available here: Braxme.APK.
