Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much does Cyph cost?
A: The Cyph beta is free to use for individuals.
Q: Is Cyph mobile friendly?
A: Native chat applications for Android and iOS are in the works but not currently avilable. However, Cyph will work on the latest versions of the Chrome mobile browser. Note: This means that iPhone's will not work by default, since the default browser on iPhones is Safari. You can download Chrome on an iPhone though.
Q: Why do I keep getting the "I'm sorry, but your cyph is in another castle" screen?
A: Common reasons for landing on this page are: the cyph URL has been opened more than once (only the first person who clicks it is allowed into the chat) or the cyph link has already expired.
Q: How do I send photos?
A: Click the media icon in the message composition textbox (on the far right; only visible when no text has been entered) and select the photo you wish to share.
Q: How do I send files?
