Take control of your digital life with our secure, privacy-focused alternatives to other invasive applications and services. All hosted on Wave Motion Digital's secure and powerful infrastructure.


Alternative to Slack

Mattermost allows you to chat internally with your staff and partners. Create private channels for project-specific discussion, share files and access your discussions with the MatterMost mobile app.

Slack has revolutionized the way we collaborate by making direct messaging easy. But it also brings into question the privacy of your messages. There have already been several eyebrow-raising issues concerning message privacy within Slack.

MatterMost is a full-featured Slack replacement which works via the web, on Mac, Linux & Windows Desktop and on iOS and Android devices.

Pricing starts at $25 per month for 40GB of storage with additional storage space available as-needed for an additional $1 per gigabyte in 5 GB chunks.

No user limits. No arbitrary upload limits. Everything you get from Slack with peace of mind.


Alternative to Google Analytics

Don’t damage your reputation with Google Analytics

You could lose your customers’ trust and risk damaging your reputation if people learn their data is used for Google’s “own purposes”.

By choosing the ethical alternative, Matomo, you won’t make privacy sacrifices or compromise your site. You can even use Matomo without needing to ask for consent.

Unlike Google Analytics which uses your data to serve its advertising platform, Matomo users can safely use analytics without worrying about data being used for marketing or any other purposes.

1Password Alternative

Passbolt is a free and open source password manager that allows team members to store and share credentials securely. For instance, the wifi password of your office, the administrator password of a router or your organisation social media account password, all of them can be secured using passbolt.

A password manager allows you to comfortably implement best security practices and therefore reduces the risks for you and your organisation.

With a password manager you can prevent your team from reusing the same password on multiple systems. You can also make sure they generate stronger passwords by default, since they do not have to remember them anymore. It also makes it easier to rotate credentials, e.g. help you change your passwords regularly, every 40 days for example.

Additionally, having an overview of who has access to what, allows you to reset passwords when somebody leaves your organisation. Reciprocally it can also help facilitate when someone is joining your team, since a new member can easily be given access to the all the password they need. It also prevents loss of credentials since you can perform backups.


Alternative to Zoom & Skype

Jitsi is a set of open-source projects that allows you to easily build and deploy secure videoconferencing solutions

Unlike other videoconferencing technologies, Jitsi Videobridge, the heart of Jitsi, passes everyone’s video and audio to all participants, rather than mixing them first.

The result is lower latency, better quality and, if you are running your own service, a much more scalable and inexpensive solution.

Jitsi supports advanced video routing concepts such as simulcast, bandwidth estimations, scalable video coding and many others.


Alternative to HipChat, Slack & Skype

Control your communication, manage your data, and have your own collaboration platform to improve team productivity. Lead with the open-source power.

Communicate and collaborate with your team, share files, chat in real-time, or switch to video/audio conferencing.

Replace e-mail! Open up the conversation and remove the need for CC/BCC by using Rocket.Chat Channels and Private Groups to speak to your team openly for greater transparency.

Communicate and collaborate using team chat and switch to video or audio calls with screen sharing for more efficient teamwork.
