Frequently Asked Questions

What is Maskbook?

Maskbook is a portal to the new, open internet. With the Maskbook browser extension and App, you, all Internet users, can create encrypted posts, play your favorite Blockchain DApps, share encrypted files or send/claim red packet on your favorite social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter.

Those companies are providing free services, right?

You are right, but providing free services only costs a little — at the same time they make much more money with your online (and even offline) behavior data, which can only be legitimately owned by you, and should only and solely be at your direction. We should stop them exploitating the value of our own data.

Will those companies ban me if I use Maskbook?

There is no allow or disallow — they will have to accept it because the last enemy for them is the users. If they ban you, it means that they could ban all the other billions of users. Wise users like you would soon panic and run for exodus and look for alternatives. Supports from users are the most valuable asset for them — that’s why they will never "massarce" users if there is another option.

Why are you so sure?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Ownership of Computation, Liberty of Encryption, and the Pursuit of Privacy.

Can my friends read my encrypted posts or red packet without installing Maskbook?

No. That is why we need you to broadcast such a great new world to your friends! We really appreciate it!

Will you be able to see what I am posting?

No. Unless we are friends. We are providing this end-to-end tool for you so that all the encryption/decryption processes are conducted on your own computers, and these social network sites are nothing more than tubes for data transmission. All the transmissions and synchronizations are powered by GunDB, a decentralized database that stores and synchronizes the public keys of Maskbook users. You may consider it a cloud vault which helps you store publicly available data. In order to ensure service stability, we run a node in the GunDB network as a superpeer with no privileges than other superpeers. However, we do provide an "Everyone mode" that you can choose to share with everyone (aka all Maskbook users).

I still don’t get it.

In short, locally, Maskbook helps you encrypt and decrypt messages and onboard you to the new web. and p2p network simplifies the process of authorizing recipients to decrypt. Those social network sites work as an infrastructure like ISPs (e.g. AT&T) that help you store and deliver the information so you and your recipients can access them anywhere and anytime.

Nice! Is it free?

YES! We will never charge you for joining this new world and will always release future versions of Maskbook under AGPL 3.0 license, so that more developers or even non-developers can join the development and help improving the software.

Can I use it on mobile devices?

Yes! You can now get Maskbook Mobile on both iOS and Android.
