Hemlis means "Secret" in Swedish.
We love the internet, social networks and the power it gives for sharing and social connections. When sharing something on Twitter or Instagram the whole world can see it and that is great!
What we don't love though is that private communication has more or less turned into an open stream for companies and governments to listen into.
Companies like Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Google have been forced to open up their systems and hand out information about their users. At the same time they have been forbidden to tell anyone about it!
We're building a message app where no one can listen in, not even us. We would rather close down the service before letting anyone in.
Secrets are only secrets if they are secret.
