What is Qabel?

Qabel is a free, published-source cryptography platform. Where others retroactively install encryption in existing services such as Cloud, e-Mail or Messenger, Qabel does it entirely the other way round: the platform encrypts everything that is connected with it end-to-end, including Messenger, e-mail, industrial applications and individual solutions.

As a user, you only have to deal once with encryption across application and can then exchange end-to-end encrypted data within applications connected to the platform. Moreover Qabel ensures that metadata is largely obfuscated.

Until now, the market has offered a lot of application-driven software that promises security. In existing individual applications like messaging, cloud and e-mail, encryption is installed later. The disadvantage: as a user, you have to configure each application separately. That is complicated and tedious and massively hinders the distribution of a standardised system.

No encryption
Unencrypted communication (e.g. cloud, e-mail, messaging, calendar, etc.).
Encryption of single applications
Application-specific: Each application must be individually encrypted, usually with a different technology. The user has to deal with everything separately (e.g. cloud, e-mail, messaging, calendar, etc.).
Encryption wth Qabel as complete solution
Cross-application: With Qabel‘s platform approach, the user must deal with encryption only once (e.g. cloud, e-mail, messaging, calendar, etc.).

One platform to encrypt everything

Qabel is to date the only software platform that allows cross-application, end-to-end encryption of communications and data exchange. It is simple, convenient and at the same time as secure as current technology permits.

The software is published-source and extensible

  • End-to-end encryption of every piece of data
  • Cryptography is carried out completely on the client side
  • Data sovereignty stays in the user's hand
  • Complex services such as shared calendars, collaborative offices and social networks are possible
  • Metadata is largely obfuscated
  • Bundling of any number of identities within one application

Qabel is an encryption program

  • End-to-end encryption of any type of digital communication
  • E-mail
  • Messaging
  • Document management
  • Data sharing
  • Project management
  • etc.

The first service, Qabel Box (Open Beta), provides client-based online storage for Android and Windows Desktop and lets you get started right away with:

  • End-to-end encrypted uploads, downloads and data storage
  • Metadata obfuscation
  • 2 GB free storage
  • More storage optionally purchasable
  • Synchronisation over any number of devices
  • Sharing with other Qabel users
  • Management of multiple identities with only one Qabel account and within one application
  • Integrated short message service
  • Currently for Android smartphones, tablets and Windows desktop devices


Just download and register. Our tariff plan Qabel Free includes 2GB of storage as a gift. More storage is available in the tariff plan Qabel Plus. Make your mobile phone and computer more secure now.

Additional Qabel applications like messaging and e-mail are already being planned.  Once ready, every new application will immediately be available for free to every Qabel user.
