We are a group of a friends who created this chat messaging system years ago to talk freely without the worries of big tech saving all our communications. It started as a website, and then we created the mobile versions because we didn't want to just be jackasses at a computer; we wanted to be jackasses all the time. We can't really claim anything above the makers of the Signals and Telegrams of the world... none of us have computer science degrees, none of us went to top 10 colleges, none of us got anything but participation awards in life, and our lead developer is a 30-something year old man who lives by himself with his two rabbits. But we are scrappy, and we built this system and use it because we believe in it and it filled a need no other app did.
Why use us?

The best answer is, because we use it. We wouldn't spill tea about all the people we know on an app we didn't trust. We made this because we wanted to talk freely without having to look over our shoulders. Other end to end encrypted messaging systems mine your metadata, or don't allow you the content control options we wanted. We are the only app to do all of the following:
The biggest but boringest topic, security:

We designed this platform for the everyday person, so we aren't going to claim our code is academically Olympics-level or will protect you against an army of quantum computers trying to break your security and steal all your selfies and sunset pics. If you are a most-wanted dissident in a totalitarian country and are regularly hunted by government chronies, we can't guarantee our app is so secure that you won't get beheaded. But the truth is, no one can. Our app is good enough for the everyday jackass like ourselves. It is fully end-to-end encrypted and for someone to try to snoop on your conversations would take a prohibitively large amount of resources and money.

That being said, we are perfectly happy with sharing the cryptographic code of LiteWire with whoever would like to review and roast it. In short, it uses the infamous double-ratchet elliptic curve encryption algorithm. We aren't comfortable just yet posting the code on the open internet because we are fearful of someone stealing the code and rebuilding the app from scratch, but email us at droidrage@litewire.app and we will be happy to talk. We are always looking to improve and take feedback well.

The following is a list of security features of LiteWire mobile that make it a desirable app for privacy that fit our needs and will hopefully win you over too:
