Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does Fractal have encryption support? Will it ever?

Fractal does not currently have encryption support, but there is an initiative for it.

The current effort is to create a monolithic module for Fractal to interact with. Said module will handle all cryptographic tasks. The goal is to reduce the amount of work required for implementing end-to-end encryption by having one thing to interact with, instead of a huge API surface.

Code and further information for this module can be found at https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/metaolm.

  • Can I run Fractal with the window closed?

Currently Fractal does not support this. Fractal is a GNOME application, and accordingly adheres GNOME guidelines and paradigms. This will be revisited if or when GNOME gets a "Do Not Disturb" feature.
