Our mission is to enable freedom and safety on the internet

We didn't create Handshake, but just like you are, we are Directors of Handshake.

Handshake will create an Internet that’s more secure, censorship-resistant, seizure-resistant, private, and truly-owned by individuals not corporations.

Our goal is to make Handshake easy-to-use to enable mass adoption.
