Your data is YOUR data! eelo in short.

eelo recognises the need shared by everyone for better data privacy. The eelo project will provide an alternative mobile operating system and associated web-services, including email, cloud storage, and online office tools. eelo is an open source, non-profit project, in the public interest.

Gaël Duval is the project founder, and lives in Europe :

Gaël is an open source advocate and has created two significant open source products: the Mandrake Linux distribution and Ulteo, an application and desktop delivery platform.

  • Reconquer my privacy.

I want to reconquer my privacy. My data is MY data. And I want to use Open Source software as much as possible.

But at the same time, the alternatives that exist at the moment don’t exactly fit my needs. First of all, I don’t want to use stock Android: it’s Google everywhere and I don’t like its default user interface. There are other initiatives too that fall short of what I’m after. I want something consistent and comfortable to use, like iOS or MacOS are. I want something I could recommend to my parents or my children. And I want something that respects my privacy.

  • Let’s build somethink new : eelo.

This "new thing" will be - as much as possible - open source. At its foundation, it will be forked from LineageOS which is open source and can run mainstream Android applications. On top of that will be layered great open source modules to form a consistent mobile and web system.

  • A project in the public interest.

I want eelo to be a non-profit project, a project “in the public interest”. I strongly believe operating systems and web services should be a shared resource: as I explained a few years ago, they are infrastructure - just like phone networks, rail tracks, and roads.

Non-profit doesn’t mean nothing will be for sale. We envisage selling preloaded eelo smartphones, and providing premium services for corporates. But profit won’t be eelo’s primary focus.

eelo vision: devices and web services with privacy respect.

And as a community project, eelo will welcome contributors.

Contributing to this crowdfunding campaign is a great way to support eelo’s first stages of development. You are encouraged to share this campaign as much as possible, to friends, on internet forums and on social medias - eelo is on Kickstarter
