Franz Privacy Statement

Good to see you around here!

Franz – a free messaging app for Slack, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram and more. Since your communication is a very personal matter, the safety of your data is very important to us!

Franz does not store your password nor does it directly access your messaging service's account!

However, in order to build a better image of how our users are interacting with Franz we use Google Analytics to track how people work with Franz and what services are being used.
