Element

10587 stars

Element is an open-source instant messaging client. Element supports end-to-end encryption, groups and sharing of files between users. With Element, conversations are hosted and owned entirely by the participating servers, instead of being stored centrally somewhere in the US, which is particularly attractive to European governments and military.
