NYOUM is a private social network. On NYOUM, you can share your life with those you love. No ads. No likes.
Social media platforms are designed to broadcast digital content to unknown friends or followers without personal connection, adequate content moderation and privacy protection.
At the same time these platforms integrate communication capabilities thus far only know from traditional messaging platforms which were designed around text messaging and closed circles. The convergence of social media and messaging platforms as well as the unacceptable downfalls of social networks necessitate a new model. NYOUM is that model.
NYOUM uses embedded generative AI to reimagine how to share life with those we love. It is built for multimedia, fully multi-modal and private by design.
Private by design
NYOUM is ad-free and built on a decentralized model to fully protect privacy. NYOUM is designed to protect any sensitive information and share data only based on explicit permission.
NYOUM utilizes state-of-the-art security and encryption to provide private messaging and internet calling services to users worldwide (“Services”). Your calls and messages are always encrypted.
Information you provide
Account Information. You register a phone number when you create a NYOUM account. Phone numbers are used to provide our Services to you and other NYOUM users. You may optionally add other information to your account, such as a profile name and profile picture. This information is encrypted.
Messages. NYOUM stores your message history on your device and its servers for 7 days. Thereafter messages are deleted to enact the “right to forget” unless you choose to save a memorable moment beforehand. Your messages are encrypted.
Additional technical information is stored on our servers, including randomly generated authentication tokens, keys, push tokens, and other material that is necessary to establish calls, transmit messages or enable services. NYOUM limits this additional technical information to the minimum required to operate the Services.
