Share your thoughts as you want with no censorship from social networks!
Ready for launch

Front-End Development

Every day thousand of facebook validators check your messages and decide which things you could share and which are not. We are against censorship in internet.

Snowden is a google chrome extension which encode your posts into smiles and grant access to all your friends (Thanks to Nucypher technology). Nobody except them could read and understand what you want to share in your news feed.

Your privacy in your hands!

Thanks for your votes. When I asked my friends to vote for this solution they asked me - what does it do? I decided to write an article to describe how it works:

Thanks for warm words Ivan! The idea of this project came for my mind when I was in Munich this March. There was a huge meeting against censorship - people votes for their ability to share their thoughts without any censorship. I share these thoughts and believe that it could be an interesting market. From technical perspective, I use Chrome Native Messaging protocol to connect extension and native app. NuCypher works as daemon - it encrypts and decrypts files and manages readers also. To make chrome native messaging app development more convenient I developed a Flask-style framework. NuCypher adds a new security layer for users posts, in other words - only you could decide who could read your private messages. End-to-end encryption becomes an industry standard in messengers, my goal is to use it for social networks!

Hello! It's amazing solution, i guess it will be usefull for many facebook users. Which technology is used in your project to run NuCypher? And can we run solution in another browsers (safari/firefox) in the future?

Hello Irina! Thank your for your question. For this moment I've tested my extension with Facebook network. It automatically detects encrypted post and show them in popup window. It should work on other sites also (who uses <p> tag in DOM for posts), but I haven't tested it yet. Have a nice day! Mikhail

Irina Svetlitskaya · posted 11 months ago

Hi, is it designed for Facebook only? Or I could use it for different sites also?
