for Privacy

Security and Privacy by Design

Threema is the messenger with rigorous data protection and rock-solid security. The chat app was developed with “Privacy by Design” as the guiding principle.

Guaranteed Privacy,
Strong Encryption

Threema is the instant messenger designed to generate as little user data as possible. All communication is always end-to-end encrypted.

Chat Anonymously:
No Phone Number Required

When setting up the chat app, each user generates a random Threema ID. Linking a phone number or email address is optional.

No Collection of User Data,
No Ads

Free online services are often financed by using user data for advertising. Threema is financed by the price of the app and does not collect user data.

Hide Private Chats
and Protect Them With a Passcode

Hide particularly sensitive chats, and lock them with a PIN or biometric data.

End-to-End Encrypted
Voice and Video Calls
Video call via Threema messenger on an Android smartphone

Place calls without revealing your phone number. Threema calls are end-to-end encrypted and thus tap-proof. They impress with crystal-clear voice quality and brilliant video quality.

100% Swiss Made
and GDPR-compliant

Threema is a true Swiss company hosting its own servers in Switzerland.** From software development to customer support, everything is done in-house. The instant-messaging service is fully GDPR-compliant.

Open Source
and Regular Security Audits

To ensure full transparency, the Threema apps are open source. Threema’s algorithms and design decisions are documented in the Cryptography Whitepaper, and external experts are commissioned to conduct comprehensive security audits on a regular basis.

Is Worth Paying For

There is no such thing as a free lunch. If you don’t pay money for a messenger service, you pay with your data instead.
