Creep.im is a free XMPP/Jabber server in a jurisdiction of France, operated by an individual, running for use by a general public. The service is setup and operated with users' security and privacy in mind. Please not abuse it and use appropriately.
In-band registration is available, use your client app to register an account. Registration using this website is not available.
Due to its focus on privacy and ease of use, Creep.im is currently getting widely abused by spammers. Which led to its inclusion in spam lists. That means that communication with other servers is limited.
IPs are not logged.
In order to be able to communicate, you have to add the contact to your contact list first.
It is possible to link your Creep.im account to your email address and use the latter to reset your password if it will get forgotten or compromised. To do this, follow this link. Linked: 1099 (+1 last day).
Creep.im has its own hidden service address in Tor: creep7nissfumwyx.onion. If you connect via Tor, use this address, since it will make you avoid exit nodes and stay inside anonymized Tor network. There is a guide how to setup your client to work with this hidden service.
Current certificate's SHA-1 fingerprint of Creep.im is 86:9f:44:b9:3e:db:ca:05:89:f1:fe:e9:b3:97:14:a7:41:4f:87:06. If your client asks you to accept some other certificate, do not allow it, since this may be a malicious activity from some third party.
By default, user-to-user messages are not stored on the server. But keep in mind that some clients do this automatically by default. For a better privacy of your communications it is strongly advised to use OMEMO or Off-the-Record messaging, so your messages will be stored on the server in the encrypted form, unintelligible to any third party.
Since Creep.im strictly follows XSF standards, there is no interoperability with Google services.
Recommended desktop client: Gajim. On mobile, Conversations client for Android is recommended, since Creep.im is 100% XMPP compliant and supports all its features, including OMEMO end-to-end encryption.
