VshGap Terms & Privacy Policy

VshGap is designed to never collect or store any sensitive information. VshGap messages and calls cannot be accessed by us or other third parties because they are always end-to-end encrypted, private, and secure.

Privacy of user data.

VshGap does not sell, rent or monetize your personal data or content in any way – ever.

Please read our Privacy Policy to understand how we safeguard the information you provide when using our Services. For the purpose of operating our Services, you agree to our data practices as described in our Privacy Policy, as well as the transfer of your encrypted information and metadata to the United States and other countries where we have or use facilities, service providers or partners.

Privacy Policy

Information you provide

Account Information.

You register a phone number when you create a VshGap account. Phone numbers are used to provide our Services to you and other VshGap users. You may optionally add other information to your account, such as a profile name and profile picture. This information is end-to-end encrypted.



VshGap cannot decrypt or otherwise access the content of your messages or calls. VshGap queues end-to-end encrypted messages on its servers for delivery to devices that are temporarily offline (e.g. a phone whose battery has died). Your message history is stored on your own devices.


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 and transmit messages. VshGap limits this additional technical information to the minimum required to operate the Services.



VshGap can optionally discover which contacts in your address book are VshGap users, using a service designed to protect the privacy of your contacts. Information from the contacts on your device may be cryptographically hashed and transmitted to the server in order to determine which of your contacts are registered.


User Support.

If you contact VshGap User Support, any personal data you may share with us is kept only for the purposes of researching the issue and contacting you about your case.


Managing your information.

You can manage your personal information in VshGap’s application Settings. For example, you can update your profile information or choose to enable additional privacy features like a Registration Lock PIN.
