In this day and age, encrypted messaging systems come cheap. However, the majority of those systems are products: they must make money. So while they provide you with end-to-end encryption for your messages, they do not always encrypt the rest of it: your contacts, your email or phone number, when you send messages… Then on most of these platforms, unknown persons can contact you, spam you or attempt one or the other phishing technique. Finally, you never know what their web or mobile client really does: is it sending data to Facebook/Meta without your knowledge, for instance?
Seeld is what a messaging system would look like if it dropped all the commercial motivations. It asks for the minimal information at registration. It end-to-end encrypts the exchanged messages, the person’s contacts and everything the servers don’t need. As a consequence, the servers that store this data become black boxes, even to administrators. By design, Seeld prevents unknown persons from sending unsolicited messages. The users don’t receive spam or fishing, unless they accepted to connect with someone they don’t know.
