Prav - private and convenient messaging

Prav is a messaging service which can be used to exchange messages, audio/video calls, files, images and videos over the Internet.

Inspired by the Quicksy app, Prav provides the convenience of registering with only a phone number.

Prav is convenient without vendor lock-in. Mainstream messaging apps only allow you to talk to people who use the same app. Prav allows you to talk to people using any app that understands the XMPP protocol, like Quicksy, Monocles Chat, Dino, Gajim, Monal, and many more.

Lastly, Prav is a cooperative (in the process of registration) which allows anyone to become a member and vote on decisions, such as the privacy policy or what features should be added.

Get involved

We are currently in private beta phase and planning for a public beta release of Prav.

Do you have experience with Android app development? We are inviting Android developers for creating prav public beta app as paid work.

Privacy By Default

All messages are end-to-end encrypted by default. When you send a message to someone, nobody else can read them - not even us.

Convenient To Register

Just enter your phone number and you are ready to talk.

Transparency And Auditability

Our apps can be verified by third-party experts at any time - they are free/swatantra software and the source code is publicly available.

Quality Calls And File Sharing

Good quality audio/video calls and file sharing.

No Lock-in

You are not locked into our service. You can move out of our service without losing any of your contacts. We don't stop users to talk to users from other XMPP services.

Democratic Decision-Making

Any user can become a member and vote on changes to privacy policy, roadmap, etc.

No Eavesdropping

We are funded directly by users, so we don't need to sell your data/metadata to sustain our service.
