iPhone Screenshots


Syphon is a privacy focused, end-to-end encryption capable matrix client aiming to feel comfortable and easy to use.

That means:
- no analytics, tracking, or telemetry
- end-to-end encryption for direct and group chats
- no third party APIs (firebase storage, facebook sdk, etc)
- opt-in only for all signs of presence (typing bubbles, read receipts, etc)
- and much more

E2EE is working for direct chats and group chats, but until we have a third party security audit, we cannot recommend using Syphon where proven and independently verified security is required.

We’re hoping that you can see the vision of the app! Want to help out or send us feedback? Feel free to email us at

Promising, but extremely buggy

Syphon is a beautiful and simple Matrix client, but as the developer has stated, not ready for everyday use. When it’s ready, it will easily be the nicest, most user-friendly client I have used so far. If you’re looking for an everyday client, Element is the way to go. If you want to fiddle with a fun and futuristic one, try Syphon.

Can’t wait!

Can’t wait to see where this goes. Like the app states it is really not ready for general use, but it is very promising! Will be nice to get away from the “flagship” disaster that is Element.

good potential

I don’t understand the appeal of the customization of absolutely everything. I never met someone that cares enough to customize all the finnicky colors and stuff. But maybe that is an android thing haha.

Speaking of colors, there is a weird thing where in a group chat, you will have two users with the same color of message bubble side-by-side. if that is gonna happen, just make all bubbles the same color.

But this app has good fundamentals. Good privacy. Good features like multi-account make it really stand out.
