A word about p2pkit privacy and security?

p2pkit uses UUIDs sent publicly over the air for nearby devices to discover each other. These UUIDs are randomly generated on the device itself when p2pkit runs for the first time and are non-personally identifiable by us (i.e. not associated to any personal data). The discovery info are also broadcasted publicly and transferred unencrypted. We hence recommend not sending any sensitive data through this means. It is up to you to add any additional safety layer and we highly recommend you to do so. For more information please refer to our Terms, License & Policies.
