Linky is a unique new model for the webLinky enables websites to utilize data (by permission) from your own local device rather than from the cloud. It's a free, easy-to-use, peer-to-peer alternative to work, play, and share with friends, family, and co-workers, and a developer SDK. With linky you own your data, have total control, better privacy, ultimate personalization, improved productivity, personal always available AI, and can share and interact with others without interference from platforms or advertisers.
What is linky technically?
Linky is peer-to-peer webapp software that runs on your devices (your phone, tablet, pc,) from which is formed an easy-to-use personal private cloud. With the help of WebRTC, BitTorrent, and IndexedDB data is stored across your devices and interactions happen device-to-device and device-to-webapp rather than through cloud servers.
Linky is NOT
- A monolithic social platform (like FB, IG, Twitter, etc.)
- A hosting service.
- An HTTP API.
- A blockchain.
- A singular home server or NAS.
- Private: data is kept local, shares are direct device‑to‑device, AI that runs privately from home.
- Personal: everyone's different - have the features you want, choose when and how things change.
- AI: unlimited machine learning that's always available.
- You're in control: linky isn't ad supported - there's no tracking, no algorithm, no unwanted interruptions, you choose what to share and see. Add all the storage space you want.

We're an international team of founders, designers, and developers with a passion to build products people love to own.
