WriteFreely, the software that powers Write Among, is built to enforce your right to privacy by default.
It retains as little data about you as possible, not even requiring an email address to sign up. However, if you do give Write Among your email address, it is stored encrypted in Write Among's database. Write Among salts and hashes your account's password.
Beyond this, it's important that you trust Forever, who runs Write Among. Software can only do so much to protect you, as your level of privacy protections will ultimately fall on the shoulders of Forever. You also must be aware that Write Among is run on a DigitalOcean VPS- meaning they may log your activity. Your Internet provider will also log your activity (and that's across all websites). Write Among also has a warrant canary here.
