Frequently Asked Questions
- Does Fractal have encryption support? Will it ever?
Fractal does not currently have encryption support, but does plan to implement it some day. There are details about the encryption flow for the Matrix team to work out, and bindings for the encryption library, olm, need to be created.
- 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.
