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.
