Our Mission

CloudVeil Messenger is designed to be a safe, simple messaging app for voice messages, text messages, and file sharing. Its purpose is not to be a social media, news, or entertainment platform. There are many other content platforms and even other Telegram clients better suited for those uses. 

Channel Policy

Blocked categories on CloudVeil Messenger will include, but are not limited to:

Adult / Pornography


Music Sharing / Search

Video Sharing / Search




Personal / Dating

If you are the channel admin and wish to request access to a business or organizational channel for a church or school, please contact CloudVeil with the following information:

  1. A brief description of the channel’s purpose and intended audience.
  2. Reason why it should be unblocked.
  3. The name of your organization.

If the request meets the criteria to be unblocked on CloudVeil Messenger, you will be notified by our CloudVeil policy team once the channel has been unblocked.

Is it really free? Absolutely!

This app is funded mainly by donations and grant money from several organizations who align with our vision of this project, along with revenue from paying customers of our other filtering products.

The work involved and the associated costs have far exceeded our initial expectations and we welcome contributions to this project. We’ll give higher priority to fixing issues or adding features requested by contributing sponsors.

CloudVeil Messenger Privacy & Security Tips


  • How can I find people on CloudVeil?
    For the protection of our users, searching all CVM/Telegram users has been disabled on CloudVeil Messenger. Some have created groups with user directories, however CloudVeil is not responsible for these and does not maintain them. Generally, you will only be able to see CVM contacts that are already in your phone's Contacts app. You will be notified when your phone contacts join CVM or Telegram.
  • Notifications all phone types - Ensure chat is not muted
    Did you know that CloudVeil allows custom notifications for your different chats? For example, users will inadvertently mute their congregational updates chat, resulting in notifications for all chats except for congregational updates. Another notification feature of CloudVeil allows you to mute notifications from all channels and groups, resulting in notifications only for direct messages. This can be set in CloudVeil Messenger > Settings > Notifications. iPhone: Slide your chat to the left to mute/unmute it. Android: Open the chat and tap the 3 dot menu at the top right. The mute / unmute option is in that menu.
  • Notifications iPhone / iPad - Do not force close CloudVeil Messenger
    Force close definition: Double tap the home button, then swipe the apps off the screen, effectively closing them down.   Do not close CloudVeil Messenger this way. Due to limitations with Apple, CloudVeil Messenger may not alert you to new messages if it's closed down this way. CloudVeil Messenger uses minimal system resources running in the background and does not need to be closed.
  • Notifications Android - Disable CloudVeil Data Restrictions
    Cloudveil Messenger needs background data permissions to get messages when you don't have the app open on the screen. If it doesn't have that access you may only receive your messages when you open the app. These settings may also vary by device but here is where they may be found on some devices.
