Seecrypt app lets iPhone, Android users keep voice calls, text messages away from carriers, government eyes and ears

Seecrypt Group Inc. recently announced the launch of Seecrypt Mobile, a new software-only communications app which allows registered users to make and receive unlimited, secure voice calls and text messages in real-time between Seecrypt Mobile-enabled devices anywhere in the world.

Currently available for Apple iPhone and Android phones, Seecrypt Mobile has an easy-to-use interface, similar to popular social messaging apps. Seecrypt Mobile is a compelling privacy service that is simple to use, easy to share, and looks and feels like your favorite apps. But more importantly, the app protects your private conversations over any public network.

The number of smartphones in use globally crossed 1 billion for the first time last year and will double by 2015. “For smartphone users who value their privacy, Seecrypt Mobile provides an unmatched level of protection,” said Mornay Walters, CEO and Co-Founder of Seecrypt, in a statement. “From personal to business users alike, whether at home or on the road, we think they’ll find the service invaluable.”

Using double layer, end-to-end, military-grade encryption techniques, Seecrypt users are given true privacy around the globe, wherever they might be. Each and every new call or message is encrypted on the device with a unique key. This affords peace of mind and maximum protection when communicating with another trusted Seecrypt user.

By using narrowband and adaptive voice compression, Seecrypt Mobile is extremely conservative on data usage, consuming data well below the current benchmark of standard voice applications. Seecrypt Mobile operates securely over any Internet-connected network worldwide, from Mobile (2G/EDGE, 3G, 4G/LTE) to Wi-Fi, and even Satellite Broadband networks, which allows for making data roaming calls more cost effective. This is a major benefit to users with poor cellular coverage or those who suffer on congested networks.

Encrypting real-time data and handling large volumes of users are both challenging and equally critical. “Creating a scalable encrypted voice-over-data application that can operate with minimal latency anywhere in the world is not easy,” said Walters. “Seecrypt met and surpassed this challenge by using a set of proprietary protocols and a carrier grade back-end infrastructure that operates on a privately controlled and globally deployed network.”

The Seecrypt Mobile app is available as a free download on Apple’s App Store. All first-time users receive a three-month, no-obligation ‘free-to-use’ account. By participating in the referral program, users will earn an extra free month for each new subscriber referred, up to a maximum of one year free. Thereafter, unlimited service costs $3 a month.

Seecrypt Group Inc. is a privately owned and funded software development company anchored in the Cayman Islands, with regional presence in the United States, Europe and Middle East. Development and network operations are located in Pretoria, South Africa.

    1. I’d rather elevate the chances of getting blown up — and bugging the entire Internet while shitting all over the Fourth Amendment didn’t do a damn thing to stop the Boston Bombing, did it? — than to live my life like a fearful, oppressed, subservient pussy. This isn’t fscking France.

      Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. — Benjamin Franklin, February 1775

        1. And the 145 democrats who also voted for the patriot act in the house and 34 in the senate when the act was supposed to sunset. Face it Obama is worse than Bush. And at the same time let down the all important pot smoker vote. Shame. Such priorities pot smokers have. Facts. Something libtards can’t handle. Again. When did big government become cool? Something to defend? Taxes cool? 60s throwbacks running the country. The USA is broke. And I’m to believe there is no slippery slope. Listen to what we are talking about. All aimed at people described as patriots. My GOD.

        2. Yep, I even remember Shaun “Tokyo Rose” Hannity telling everyone how we ‘had to give up a few liberties, temporarily, in order to protect our nation’. I also remember how the Demokrats were screaming in outrage over the Patriot Act’s invasion of privacy & the President (Bush at the time) was out of line.

          Well, they were right… and then shut right up when they realized that when they were in power they could use the same violations of our freedoms to augment their own power in office.

          Two party system is nothing more than one sack of fertilizer with two labels on it – either way it’s bullsh*t. Vote Libertarian or vote with your feet & expatriate.

      1. Such a polital troll idiot. Liberty isn’t privacy. Freedom isn’t secrecy. Simply quoting something doesn’t mean you know but it proves you lack common sense. The Boston bomber was caught from video surveillance. England, Russia, Canada, The U.S. have used eavesdropping and surveillance to catch terrorists.

        Thanks Slamm for providing the truth.

  1. No terrorist is going to use Seecrypt because the U.S. Government is data-mining for links between suspected and known terrorists and then puts a human in the loop to listen in on conversations.

    Soo Seecrypt is for use by the following customers:

    • Regular ol’ crooks who want to commit crimes and not leave behind evidence that would prove the prosecutor’s case.

    • Conspiracy theorists spouting non-falsifiable claims about all manner of what the “gumint” is up to—including UFOs at Area 51.

    • Megalomaniacs who think it’s all about them.

    Go ahead and vote one star; it’s true.

      1. Thanks “Ward”. Oh, I can think of a fourth kind of customer:

        • Young-at-heart techies who want to do the free, three-month-long registration and play James Bond with an equally minded friend.

        But that would only be fun for a day or two. After that, they’d just have to tell some coworker at Starbucks what they’ve got the capability of doing. Starbucks employees being the type they are, most coworkers would smile and walk away.

    1. How about another type of customer; someone like me, who only ever talks to a limited number of friends over the phone, and who would be more than happy to use a system that allows phone calls from anywhere to anywhere, for less than half the price of a pint of beer a month.
      Otherwise, I have nothing to fear from government covert surveillance in either the UK or the US, they’re quite welcome to listen in on my mundane conversations for as long as they like; they’ll get very bored, very quickly.

  2. So having to pay to stop something that shouldn’t be done in the first place?
    And, how do you know the NSA, CIA, fill-in-your-choice, is not behind this?

  3. Since Seecrypt operates within the US, they are subject to CALEA; i.e., they are required to provide access to your conversation by LEAs when so ordered, and they must do it without you being able to discern that it’s happening.

    “Big Brother and the Thought Police will not be pleased that you think they can’t capture your conversation.

    1. So if the largest corporations (like Apple, now the largest) run the government, why pray tell, did they have to appear in from of a committee to be berated on the overseas holdings, and be sued by the justice department (you do realize the justice department is under the direct control of the POTUS, yes?)

      1. Never think of what amounts to our Corporate Oligarchy as a united front. If anything, Apple is an outsider from what little unity there is among businesses.

        We’ve gone over this subject here at MDN. My personal theory is that Apple is too good a company to fit into the mediocre and corrupt standards of most of the rest of our Corporate Oligarchy. Apple don’t much feed money to politics. Apple don’t play well with the Wall Street parasites and manipulators. Put that together and both our Corporate Oligarchy AND their puppetted US government don’t like Apple. A lot of facts fit. But as per usual, we never know everything about anything. I want more information.

        I have zero confidence in our POTUS. He’s just another puppetted liar from what I can tell at this point. The GW Bush administration pointed out that there’s a hell of a lot more to the executive branch than just the POTUS. As I always point out, it was a gang from the PNAC cult (Project for the New American Century) who ran the majority of the executive branch for those 8 years, not the POTUS. From what I can tell, THEY told HIM what to do. And he did.

        IOW: It’s a 3D world out here. Limiting our perceptions does nothing more than make us ignorant.
