Create your inclusive, privacy-respecting community

Get started

Protect your community.

Your community can speak freely in the knowledge that their conversations are secured with end-to-end encryption; be that on-premise, hosted by Element or a provider of your choice. That means no data mining and no third party access.

Safe and inclusive.

Element has powerful auditing and moderation features - including server ACLs, shared moderation lists, message deletion, extensible anti-spam and anti-flooding mechanisms. It is easy to use, and offers excellent accessibility and screen reader support.

Created by a community, for communities.

"Mozilla values open communities, accessibility and trustworthy collaboration; the move to Element has been a huge improvement for us and a great experience for our company and community."

— Mike Hoye, Mozilla

Come as you are.

It’s a warm welcome when you can stay in your favourite app. Element works seamlessly with any other Matrix-based messenger. It is interoperable with traditional siloed apps, and protocols like IRC and XMPP.

For all shapes and sizes.

Built on the Matrix open standard, Element gives communities independence and flexibility. Configure as you wish; and with no limits on connections your community can grow from tens to millions.

Opt for a fully managed deployment.

You keep all the control and ownership, while we host and manage your own community-branded domain.

Matrix is an open network for secure, decentralised communication, connecting 60M+ users over 80K+ deployments.

Governed by The Matrix.org Foundation, the Matrix protocol is an open standard with open source implementations, supporting a vibrant developer ecosystem. Element was founded by the team behind Matrix as a way to bring it to the mainstream.

Open source

Element is incredibly proud to build in the open, sharing almost all of our own code with everyone.
