Is the Standard Notes source code public?

Yes, the source code for the Standard Notes application and server are 100% open and available for anyone to see. This ensures that it’s clear how your data is being handled every step of the way. Many companies promise encryption but don’t open up their code for peer-review. We believe the definition of end-to-end encryption should mean that code on both ends is available for everyone to scrutinize. While trust in a closed system can be convenient at times, nothing is more trustable than mathematical certainty and utter transparency.

Our source code can be viewed here.
