Gibberfish isn’t just committed to helping change-makers. We think everyone has a vested interest in privacy, encryption, and control of their own data. Therefore, we contribute our server resources to other decentralized, privacy-respecting online communities.
The servers listed below are run by us and are freely available to the general public. They are joined to global networks of other volunteer run servers. We do not collect any data about our users. If there are additional services you would like to recommend to us, please use our secure Contact Us form.
SearX Anonymous Search
Searx is a search engine that doesn’t collect data about you. It searches major search engines such as Google and Bing on your behalf, then aggregates the results for you, so you cannot be tracked or profiled. Click here to get started (Tor users can click here instead).
Secure Instant Messaging
Our IM server allows you to sign up and start chatting without providing any personal information. It uses XMPP, also known as “Jabber”, which allows you to talk to users on any other public XMPP server, transparently. You can also create and join chatrooms, send files, and make peer to peer video calls. It works with virtually all popular instant messaging clients, such as Pidgin, Adium, Trillian, and Conversations. Visit our welcome page to get signed up.
Matrix is a full featured messaging platform. It can be compared to commercial offerings like Slack or Microsoft Teams, but free, open, and decentralized. You can connect using your web browser by clicking here, or install the Riot.im app on your mobile device.
Diaspora* Social Network
We are proud to sponsor our own Diaspora* pod as a part of “The Federation”, a decentralized, user-owned alternative to Facebook. Anyone can sign up for free. Click here!
Tor Exit Relay
Tor works by obfuscating your internet browsing habits, which preserves online anonymity and helps you avoid being tracked. Every time a new relay comes online, it increases the speed and protection for all Tor users, so we’ve created our own! Getting started is as easy as installing the Tor Browser , which automatically sends your traffic through the Tor network
