If you purchased the Above Privacy Suite, you need to complete the registration form before continuing with the instructions below. Check your email for the Above Privacy Suite invitation.

If you did not purchase Above Privacy Suite and would like to use XMPP, please read through #TakeBackOurTech's article on XMPP to register to a public server.

  • Open the Cheogram app
  • Accept Permissions and navigate to the login screen
  • On the welcome screen select 'I have an account'  

If you are subscribed to the Above Privacy Suite, you can use the XMPP account we created for you on our servers.

The XMPP address looks like this:  <user>@chat.above.im

The password will be the same one you defined right when you created your APS account.

Then just hit Next at the bottom right and you're good to go! Your account will stay logged in in the app.

Please note that your XMPP address is slightly different than your Above Privacy Suite (APS) Email address:

<user>@above.im  <- Email address

<user>@chat.above.im <- XMPP address

Other XMPP clients

Like other XMPP clients (blabber.im, Snikket, monocles chat) for Android, Cheogram is largely based on Conversations.

The login procedure is pretty much the same for all of the ones mentioned and the credentials can be used universally - including XMPP clients on other systems and platforms.
