1. Sharing data
We never share your data with anyone. No.
KidsChat only stores the data it needs to function properly — for as long as you want KidsChat to function.
KidsChat is a cloud service. We store messages, photos and videos from your cloud chats on our servers, so that you can access your data from any of your devices anytime and use our instant server search to quickly access your messages from waaay back. All data is stored heavily encrypted and the encryption keys in each case are stored in several other DCs in different jurisdictions. This way local engineers or physical intruders cannot get access to user data.
KidsChat uses phone numbers as unique identifiers, so that it is easy for you to switch from other messaging apps (SMS, WhatsApp, etc.) and retain your social graph. We ask your permission before syncing your contacts.
We store your contacts in order to notify you as soon as one of your contacts signs up for KidsChat and to properly display names in notifications. We only need the number and name (first and last) for this to work and store no other data about your contacts.
