An internet you
can embrace

Our Brand Story

The internet has changed everything. It’s transformed the way we interact, shop and think about the world. Many of these changes have been positive, but not all.

Some people aim to exploit this freedom. Credit card and identity fraud are on the rise, while viruses are endemic. Not only that, corporations are selling our data and some dictate the content we consume.

Kape are determined to fix things. We believe a secure, free online experience is a basic right. That’s what motivates us.
