Built on the Matrix open ecosystem, your secure chat can be as open and interoperable as you like. You'll get a customized instance of Riot.im and your own dedicated Matrix homeserver: all you need to get chatting!
## Your own Riot.im
Riot.im is a chat app with direct chats, private groups, public rooms, video and voice calling. Easily navigate between family, work and public communities.
## E2E Encryption More Info »
Yes, we’re hosting your data. No we can’t access it. All the conversations are only readable by the people participating in them: benefit from Matrix's best in class end-to-end encryption when enabled.
## Open! Or closed…
Allow your users to chat with any of the other millions of Matrix app users out there. Suppliers, customers, community members, friends, as easy as email. They might even be using Slack, Discord or other bridged apps. But we do also give the option to restrict external communications if you wish.
## Integrations & Bridges
GitHub, Google Apps, YouTube, and more: check out the apps you can integrate in your chat and the networks you can bridge to, from Slack to Twitter. As Matrix is an open standard, benefit from the work of the community or add new ones yourself.
## No lock in
Matrix is an open standard. Your users are not bound to Riot.im, they can use any other Matrix app with your server. They only need to use your custom server URL when they login. And if you want to move away to another server, you can migrate your data!
We also provide migration tools to help you move your users from another Matrix server or Chat platform. We currently offer Matrix and HipChat migration tools and are adding more all the time.
## Open Source
Both Riot.im and the Synapse Matrix homeserver are open source. Benefit from the constant input of an enthusiastic community, or join in on GitHub yourself!
