Hermit is a secure, private writing application for everybody who likes to write, from scribblers to aspiring authors.
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!
We understand your need for privacy and solitude. All of your activity and content stored on Hermit’s servers is fully-encrypted – keeping everything safely preserved from within and without.
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.
Hermit tears down all layers of complexity and provides a beautiful, minimalistic layout to optimize your writing 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.
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.
