*UPDATE* Librem 5 – A Security and Privacy Focused Phone


The campaign has reached $200,000!!

"The phone campaign is off to a great start! We have recently crossed the $200,000 milestone shortly after the beginning of the campaign. Crowdfunding is always a matter of shared interest and momentum, which often leads to interesting situations...From discussing with supporters, it seems many have been waiting to see if the campaign is going to get to 100% before committing, which is probably a communication mistake on our part, as the campaign is a no-risk, all-or-nothing campaign: if you back the campaign using a credit card, we only pre-authorize your card; we will not (and cannot) charge your card until we cross the goal. Which means, you get to show your support early and get all the other "wait-and-see" folks to pile on! Feel free to back this campaign now (and pay later). Be the change you want to see!"

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines: https://relay.mastodon.host

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
