  • Blackout was created to reduce the attack surface of individual and group communication. Our goal is to ensure your conversations stay between you and the individuals you send them to. We want to get back to the days when you could talk to a friend in confidence or have people over to your home and know that your conversations are confidential.
  • With this in mind we have created a homeserver using the Matrix protocol hosted with Synapse.
