Element is . . .

  • an all-in-one secure chat app for teams, friends, and organizations. Keeps conversations in your control, safe from data-mining and ads. Talk to everyone through the open global Matrix network, protected by proper end-to-end encryption.
  • more than a messaging app. Element is a shared workspace for the web. Element is a place to connect with teams. Element is a place to collaborate, to work, to discuss your current projects.
  • an application that removes the barriers between apps, allowing you to connect teams and functionality like never before.
  • a front-end client implementing the decentralized, secure, messaging and data-transport protocol, Matrix.
    (Note: Element was once named Riot. It was rebranded as of version 1.7.0.)

Element is free. Element is secure.
