Dec 01 2023



Cryptpad version 5.5.0 is out and the team is preparing the next release 5.6.0 by the end of 2023.

CryptPad is a collaborative office suite that is end-to-end encrypted and open-source. CryptPad is made at XWiki, a company based in Paris, France that has been making open-source software for over 15 years.

CryptPad aims to demonstrate that you can have both collaboration and privacy, at the same time. We offer a full office suite with real-time collaboration, in addition all data is end-to-end encrypted. The people you invite can edit together in real-time while the service and its administrators cannot read any of the content.
