A secure contact and calendar syncing application for Android.
Flock is a replacement for the default contact and calendar synchronization services provided by Google. Flock provides end-to-end encryption between multiple Android devices putting the privacy of your contacts and calendars back under your control. To facilitate syncing between multiple devices a "sync service" is required, this can be any standards compliant WebDAV server that conforms to the following RFCs:
- RFC 2518 - HTTP Extensions for Distributed Authoring -- WEBDAV
- RFC 4918 - HTTP Extensions for Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV)
- RFC 6352 - CardDAV: vCard Extensions to Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV)
- RFC 4791 - Calendaring Extensions to WebDAV (CalDAV)
The Android app can be downloaded through Google Play or via our alternative distribution channel. Note that the certificate presented by our alternative distribution channel is signed by the same private certificate authority pinned by Flock's trust store.
