Your data is safe and private from everyone and everything, including A.I.

StrongSalt, the Privacy API for your information on a decentralized network, makes cloud as private as your thumb drive.









Privacy matters

Take away the fear of someone else managing your files. StrongSalt’s private decentralized information network keeps your data in the hands of no one but you.


Save and access your confidential files anytime and anywhere using StrongSalt’s groundbreaking searchable encryption.


Shield your data from being accessed or deleted by outside entities using advances in encryption and decentralization.


Share your data and chat at ease with StrongSalt’s blockchain technology designed specifically for low latency communication.

How we keep your data secure

We only use modern and widespread cryptographic algorithms. As mathematics, quantum computers, and hardwares advance, our cryptographic modules stay updated to reflect the latest best practice for strong security.


Searchable encryption allows you to encrypt all your files and provides you ability to search the content without decrypting it first.


StrongSalt’s multi-channel datagram network protocol enhances security and reduces latency of existing TCP-based network movement.


Blockchain prevents the network from being owned by one entity so that the service cannot be shut down by the whim of any one company or government.


The latest advances in cryptography, encryption, and private information retrieval preserve your privacy and anonymity.

Our Mission

Preserve privacy

We believe that everyone is born with certain unalienable rights, including the right of privacy.

Promote net neutrality

We proudly support net neutrality and consider it to be essential for the freedom of speech.

Enhance security

Not only will StrongSalt protect data security of the IoT devices but also help protect the privacy of humans who are using those smart devices.

Growing community

We envision a future where small communities can grow without fear of losing privacy.

Our Whitepaper

We are excited to share with you the StrongSalt Whitepaper. This Whitepaper introduces you to the decentralized communication platform designed for IoT and the humans using these devices to help preserve human privacy in the world of AI and smart devices. We have also included a whitepaper giving an overview on standard searchable encryption (our product uses a much more advanced form of searchable encryption not mentioned in the whitepaper).
