SAFE Network - Quick Summary

SAFE stands for Secure Access For Everyone. The SAFE Network is a secure data storage and communication platform, owned by users and controlled by no one. Instead of relying on servers that are operated by companies and can be shut down or censored, SAFE doesn't have a central authority that can control the content on the network. By installing and running the SAFE Client, content and services are encrypted and automatically distributed over the network so they can't get lost. Anyone can join by installing the SAFE software and creating an account free of charge. No personal information is shared with the network unless you explicitly publish it.
