The Session app does not collect or share your information. That’s our policy in a nutshell.
Session is designed so that it doesn’t store any information which could be used to track you.
You don’t need a phone number, e-mail, or any information tied to your real identity to make a Session account. We did this so that you’ll know you’re private and anonymous whenever you use Session.
We don’t make you jump through hoops or tweak settings to be private — Session is private by default.
No other information is collected or stored.
If you use Session on your Android or iOS phone, Google or Apple might store information about how you use the app.
They can record when the app is closed, opened, how long you use it for, crash logs, and your device model. This usage information could also be associated with your Google or Apple account, and it is shared with us.
This is a limitation of mobile operating systems, and applies to all apps used on your device. Besides this, we don’t share any of your information with Apple, Google, or anyone else.
If you’re planning to use Session on mobile, it’s worth reading Apple or Google’s privacy policies. If you’re using iOS, check out Apple’s App Store Review Guidelines. For Android, read the User Data section of Google’s Developer Policy Center.
The Session website never attempts to link your usage of the website to your real identity or create a user profile based on your activity.
We don’t want to collect or store any of your information that isn’t strictly necessary, so all information is deleted within 6 months of being collected. All the data we do collect is to help improve the website, and anything older than this is unlikely to be useful, so it is deleted.
The Session website stores some data to make sure it is easy-to-use and fast-to-load.
We use Cloudflare services in order to serve the Session website. Cloudflare keeps logs about HTTP requests for the Session domains, which can be stored for up to 7 days.
If you choose to subscribe to Session’s e-mail newsletter, your e-mail will be stored. Our e-mail campaigns are managed through optin forms and Campaign Monitor. However, if you unsubscribe from our mailing list, your e-mail will be deleted.
Used to track the number of page views a user goes through.
We do not share or sell any data we collect on the Session website with third parties. Simple as that.
This is the way the Session app and website treat your privacy. If you would like more information, have suggestions about how we can better protect your privacy, or just want to say hello — please send us an email at [email protected]
