About Us

CalyxOS is a project of The Calyx Institute, a tax exempt non-profit organization founded in 2010 and headquartered in New York, USA

We are an educational organization that researches and builds privacy enhancing technology and gives it away for free.  Everything we do is guided by the philosophy known as "Privacy by Design" which means proactively embedding privacy into the design and operation of technology, networks, and business practices.

We believe that transparency and peer review lead to better products, which is why we publish all of our source code and conduct our development in public.

Currently all funding for the CalyxOS project has been provided by the contributions of the membership of The Calyx Institute.  If you are interested in supporting this project, please consider becoming a member and/or recommending it to your friends !
