Locus is a free, open source app for Android and iOS that allows you to share your location live. It encrypts your location end-to-end, meaning that no one, not even we, can read it. It stores the location decentralized on multiple servers of your choice using Nostr, meaning that you are not locked to a service. No authentication required.


iOS currently does not have a release. You will need to build and install the app yourself.

Locus comes in two variants for Android:

  • GMS: This variant uses Google Play Services to get your location. If you have Google Play Services installed, you need to use this variant.
  • FLOSS: This variant is completely libre and does not use any proprietary software. If you have NO Google Play Services installed, you need to use this variant.

It might sound crazy, but if you would just donate 1$, it would totally mean to world to me, since it’s a really small amount and if everyone did that, I can totally focus on Locus and my other open source projects. 🙂
