Creating your ‘Spreed Name’

To create your ‘Spreed Name’ click on the button „Get started” on www.spreed.me, set your ‘Spreed Name’ and password and upload a security picture to secure your account.
Spreed.ME does not ask for your email address, therefore ‘Spreed Names’ can not be mapped to users. To secure your account, you have to upload a security picture. The image itself is not stored, but used temporarily to calculate a SHA-256 finger print (hash value). This hash value will be used to restore your account in case you lose your password.
Your security picture and password will be stored as salted SHA-256 hashes. It is technically not possible to restore your password or security picture out of the hash value.
If you invite other people to Spreed.ME, they will be informed about your ‘Spreed Name’. The email address of the person you invite to Spreed.ME is only used for invitation, thus not stored persistently.

Spreed.ME service

You can use the Spreed.ME service anonymous. After creating your ‘Spreed Name’ you can edit your personal settings – upload/take a photo of yourself, insert your name and add a status message. Please keep in mind that your public profile information is visible for other Spreed.ME users which are in the same Spreed.ME room. The data you enter in your public profile is not stored persistently. If you delete your browser history or use the Spreed.ME service on another PC or browser, you have to fill out your profile data again.

Video calls

The files or presentations uploaded in your video calls are only shared with the people in your calls. Your calls are private and cannot be accessed by third parties.

Spreed.ME screen sharing extension

Using our screen sharing extension for your secure Iridium Browser or Google Chrome, you can share your whole screen or a single window with other users in your video conference. There is no installation on your computer necessary, the shared data is not stored and cannot be accessed by third parties.

Peer-to-Peer chat

Use the public chat (room chat, visible for all people in the same room) or private chat (visible only for the person you are chatting with). You can share your location via Google Maps or send files. Chat history is not stored.

Manage contacts

By clicking on the star icon beside the profile picture of a user you can add him or her to your temporary contact list. Your contacts are not stored persistently.

Reset password

If you lose your password, click on “Problems signing in?” to reset your password. Enter your ‘Spreed Name’ and upload your security picture or alternatively enter your SuperPIN and set a new password. If you forgot your ‘Spreed Name’ as well as your password and can’t remember your security picture (or lost it), it is not possible to recover your account. Please create a new ‘Spreed Name’.

Delete account

To delete your ‘Spreed Name’, sign in with your credentials and click on “Manage Spreed Name” after clicking on “Settings“. In addition to other account management possibilities (change password/Spreed Name/Super PIN/security picture), you can delete your ‘Spreed Name’ here. This cannot be undone and your ‘Spreed Name’ as well as all of your settings will be deleted irrevocably.

Security

Spreed.ME provides true end-to-end perfect-forward-secrecy (PFS) data security with industry-leading 256-bit AES encryption. Swiss trust center security with 2048-bit RSA key length certificates provide measures that address both passive and active attacks against confidentiality, integrity and identity.
