There has never been a better time to get into XMPP, a free public chat network no one controls or owns. Monal is a fast and user friendly way to use XMPP. Just download the app, login or register and you are ready to chat in minutes. It looks and works the way other apps do, so there is no need to “learn XMPP” or even care what it is.

Notable features:
-Open Source
- No Ads! Strong focus on privacy. Does not phone home and does not have "metrics" software beyond anonymous crash reporting (crashlytics). Does not read any personal information.
- With a direct connection to your server, your password and all other info is never sent to a third party.
- OMEMO encrypted chat
- Will work with corporate XMPP servers that require VPN
- MUC multi user chat
- Standard XMPP Jingle VOIP

Implements XMPP certain extensions intended to improve mobile communication.
- XEP-0357: Push Notifications
- XEP-0280: Message Carbons keep messages in synch between clients.
- XEP-0198: Stream Management to quickly reconnect.

Great XMPP solution for macOS

Can't wait for the improvements for group chat coming in version 5.1, which will hopefully bring more fine grained notification settings.

Thanks too all involved in making Monal ♥️

Buggy, no support for self-signed servers

Glitchy at best, bugs and crashes at worst. They removed the switch to allow self-signed server certificates and now I can't use monal anymore. Good riddance.

Entwickler-Antwort ,

Self-signed certificates are an anachronism. You can always create a free LetsEncrypt certificate. Using self-signed certificates without any fingerprint checking etc. allows for trivial man-in-the-middle attacks you won't even notice. Hence "encryption" with self-signed certs is completely useless and thus we removed that insecure and really dangerous "feature".If you experience bugs/crashes please reach out to us, we can't fix anything if nobody even tells us about it. You can create an issue at github ( ) or reach us per mail:
