Our Principles

Write.as was built with a few core principles in mind. If we violated these, we simply wouldn't be Write.as anymore. We're putting these here as a constant reminder of what we stand for, and so you can hold us to a higher standard.

No ads ever.

Ads aren't just annoying — they commonly invade your privacy and track your digital activity. We'll shut down before we turn to advertising to support Write.as.

Data freedom.

We aim to provide a useful service — not hold you captive. Export everything you've made at any time for free.

Supporting an open web.

We believe in an independent, open web. We integrate with a variety of services, and will eventually have more tools to self-host the things you create with Write.as.

Privacy by default.

You should be able to enjoy the same privacy online as you do offline. We don't log your IP address (use our Tor hidden service to be sure) and our apps will never track you. Any personal information you give us will never be shared with third parties.

Supported by our users.

Essential Write.as features will always be free to use. But as a Pro subscriber you can directly help us build a product that will last.

For our users.

We built Write.as for you. We're always listening on our many communication channels for feedback, questions, or suggestions you may have — reach out to us any time!
