Switch between storage and apps
while taking the data along
Move freely between services
Switch to the best tools and take your data with you.
Reuse data across apps
Stop re-entering the same data again and again by recycling data from app to app.
Connect with anyone
Connect to your friends no matter what app they are using.
Select what you share precisely
Give access to the bare minimum of data needed for the service to work.
Like peas in a Pod
Your Pod is where you store your data. Pods and apps are separate but compatible so you are free to change apps while keeping your data. For example, if you want to switch messaging app you can take your contacts and chat history along easily, as long as both apps support Solid.
The last login you'll ever need
Your WebID changes the power dynamic. You call the shots: instead of creating an account for each app, have each app find your account. On top of that, your WebID makes it possible for people to connect to you, no matter what Solid apps they are using.
Open specifications built on open standards
Websites, you can browse them on any device and with a browser you choose. Solid gives you that same choice, but for data: you can pick the apps you trust to handle your personal data. To realize such unprecedented interoperability, Solid uses the same recipe as the Web: following open standards and specifications. Anyone is welcome to join the standardisation process.
