About Us

Idka is a Swedish word meaning “to do” or to “to accomplish”. The founders of Idka want to enable and inspire people to take control of their information online, and to protect their privacy as they go about their digital lives.

For privacy-conscious individuals, groups, and organizations, Idka is a safe place to connect, share, and store online. Idka is ad-free, and without the algorithms, bots, and trolls that live on other social platforms. Idka has all the functionality you expect from a collaborative social platform – and then some – all on one platform. It’s easy to post, chat, communicate, upload, store and share pictures, videos, documents and files – while your privacy remains intact.

Use Groups to organize topics, activities and projects, and use Circles to organize your contacts and work more efficiently. … The Idka functionality is extensive, and there is much more to come. Available on the web, and on IOS and Android mobile platforms.

Unlike with most social platforms, privacy is at the heart of what we do, and that will never change. We will never sell or commercialize your data or encourage you to share it unintentionally. We do not ask for shared ownership or the right to use any of your data. Since we do not sell it, we do not need to do this. It is your data, not ours, and all is kept safe and private. On Idka, you can express yourself freely and safely.
