Privacy Policy


UWPX is an XMPP client, that connects to XMPP servers. It does not collect any personal data and all ways data is collected can be disabled.

Crash reporting

After a crash, the App will collect data about what happened and uploads this bundle to App Center or for versions lower than v. to HockeyApp.
Although it's not recommended, it can be disabled via Settings -> Misc -> Disable crash reporting.

Example report:
Incident Identifier: 9f87a925-2d28-40d1-9612-02b3c8cfc1d7

Since version UWPX uses AppCenter Analytics to report basic information like session count, duration and which OS version you are running on. Like Crash Reporting, Analytics can be disabled via Settings -> Misc -> Disable analytics.


XMPP accounts you add, get stored in a local SQLite-net database. This database is located in the apps ApplicationData folder, where by design no other applications have access to.
The password for each account gets stored in a PasswordVault (implementation).
Passwords for MUCs and all OMEMO keys get stored in plain text in the above mentioned database.

Picture library

The App accesses your picture library to store downloaded images.
This can be disabled via Settings -> Chat -> Store images in library.
If disabled, the app will store all newly downloaded images in the local app directory.

General filesystem

UWPX accesses to the general file system only in case you want to export logs (Settings -> Misc -> Export logs).


Since version UWPX uses Bluetooth to connect and register new experimental XMPP IoT devices.


Since version UWPX can use your webcam to scan XMPP realted Qr-Codes. This is used for scanning/validating OMEMO fingerprints and experimental XMPP IoT setup QR-Codes.
