Take Back Control
Veilid is an open-source, peer-to-peer, mobile-ﬁrst, networked application framework.
Veilid (pronounced Vay-Lid, from 'Valid and Veiled Identification')
Veilid allows anyone to build a distributed, private app. Veilid gives users the privacy to opt out of data collection and online tracking. Veilid is being built with user experience, privacy, and safety as our top priorities. It is open source and available to everyone to use and build upon.
Veilid goes above and beyond existing privacy technologies and has the potential to completely change the way people use the Internet. Veilid has no profit motive, which puts us in a unique position to promote ideals without the compromise of capitalism.
We built Veilid because when the Internet was young and new, we viewed it as an endless and open realm of possibility.
Instead, the Internet we know now has been heavily commercialized, with users and their data being the most sought-after commodity. The only ways to opt-out of becoming the product for billionaires to exploit are either too technical for the average user, or to simply not go online.
We don't believe that is fair; we still haven't given up our dream for the entire Internet to be free and accessible without trading privacy to use it.
We believe that everyone should be able to forge relationships, learn, create, and build online — without being monetized.
With Veilid, the user is in control, in a way that is approachable and friendly, regardless of technical ability. We want to give the world the Internet we should have had all along.
