Hermit can be whatever you want it to be

An online diary that will keep all your secrets and private thoughts safe, a reflective journal where you can pour all your emotions and record life events or maybe even an infinite digital parchment for that novel you always wanted to write!

Powerful Auto-Save

We’re no strangers to the frustration of random, unannounced browser and computer crashes. We’ve all been there. Combined with our auto-save feature, everything you type is automatically backed up on Hermit’s servers so you never lose any data.

Pen-Pal Platform

Connect with people from around the world.

Over 160 countries

Hermit is a highly diverse platform with users from over 160 Countries. That’s pretty much everywhere on earth. It’s the perfect place to make friends, exchange ideas with someone from a different culture and gain perspective.

Real Pen-Pal Experience

“Patience is bitter, but its fruits is sweet” Aristotle certainly got that right!

When you receive a letter from your Pen-Pal, you have to wait 12 hours before you can read it. A lot of the excitement of having a Pen-Pal is in the wait. We believe it’s what makes the experience so much different than instant messaging.

Totally Anonymous

Think Incognito! Aside from your username and the country you’re from, your Pen-Pal will know absolutely nothing about you. You’re in full control of your privacy.
