Sunbird Privacy and Security Standards

Privacy Matters

At Sunbird, we value user privacy and security above all else. We offer a messaging service that is completely private, with no message data collected on users. Messages are transmitted using end-to-end encryption. Continue reading to see how Sunbird cares about privacy, and how our App provides a secure and private messaging experience for everyone.

No Message Data Collection

Sunbird is unique in that it does not collect any message data on its users. No messages, content, contacts, etc. We only collect Sunbird App account information from you to authenticate your account. This means that the company does not store any user data on its servers, nor does it collect any metadata about messages. This includes information such as message timestamps, sender and recipient IP addresses, or any other data that could be used to identify users. By not collecting any message data, Sunbird ensures that there is nothing to compromise or leak, making it virtually impossible for any third party to gain access to user information.

End-to-end Encryption

Sunbird uses end-to-end encryption to ensure that messages are private and secure. This means that messages are encrypted on the user's device and can only be decrypted by the intended recipient’s account. The encryption process is automatic and requires no additional input from the user, making it simple and seamless. With end-to-end encryption, Sunbird ensures that only the intended recipient can read messages, and that even if a third party were to intercept them, they would be unable to decipher the contents.

Encryption is the process of converting plain or readable text into an unreadable format, called ciphertext, to protect the information's confidentiality. The process of encryption involves the use of an algorithm, which is a mathematical formula that is used to transform the original text into the encrypted form. The algorithm requires a key, which is a unique code used to encrypt and decrypt information.

No Advertising

Sunbird is also unique in that it does not have any advertising on its App. This means that the company does not collect any user data on the App for advertising purposes, nor does it sell user data to third-party advertisers. By not relying on advertising revenue, Sunbird can focus solely on providing a secure and private messaging experience for its users.

Sunbird puts privacy on top of all other initiatives. By not collecting any message data on users, using end-to-end encryption, and not relying on advertising revenue, Sunbird ensures that App users can communicate securely and without fear of compromise. With its commitment to privacy and security, Sunbird sets a new standard for messaging services, offering a truly private and secure communication experience for its users.
