     UAround messenger - the world's first instant messenger that provides real protection for correspondence. In our messenger you can encrypt the forwarded and received your message using a 256 bit key. Your message is encrypted on your phone and stands only on the recipient's phone when this phone has a password for decryption. All the way to the recipient message is held in an encrypted form. If your message is intercepted, it will be useless.

     We do not promise you to encrypt, unlike other popular applications, we give you the encryption.
You can independently verify the encryption. Encrypt a message on your phone and send it to the recipient device. If the recipient does not enter on your phone decryption key, he will not be able to read your message.

How it works.
1. You need to select the user with whom you want to communicate.
2. In the text field, in the right corner there is an icon "lock", click on it.
3. In the new window, enter and confirm your key consisting of at least 8 characters. The app will put your key into a 16200 bit key. If the operation is successful, you'll be back on the chat screen.
4. Now write and send your messages. All posts in the chat will be encrypted.
5. The recipient will get your messages in an encrypted form. In order that the recipient was able to decrypt incoming messages, he should enter the key as the sender's phone.
ATTENTION! The encryption key is not sent over the network to the recipient. How to pass the key to decrypt your task recipient.
6. After entering the key in the phone message recipient, he will be able to read and send encrypted messages to you.

We care about your security in the network and provide you with our app for free. Thank you for choosing us !!

Chat with one or many users at once and access the same account on multiple devices using strong encryption. Conclave only stores and transmits messages and files that are encrypted, so by default, only your devices and your intended recipients can view them.

Terms of Service: https://conclave.global/about/terms/
Privacy Policy: https://conclave.global/about/privacy/


Newest features:

• Upload an avatar (gifs supported)
• Create and events to share with others
• Export device keys to an external application to ensure you never lose access to your account
• Create channels and add/remove subscribers to discuss and collaborate together
• Unsend messages and photos that you don't want the other person to see
• Mark conversations or messages as secret, requiring you and/or the recipient to enter a password to view them

Other features:
• Client-side, end-to-end encryption for complete privacy
• Full compatibility with other platforms
• Securely message single users and groups of users
• Send and receive encrypted files
• Share and collaborate on folders
• Securely share multiple files at once
• Use the same account with multiple devices
• Access your chat history anywhere
• Get notified of new messages as they arrive
• Cryptographically verify contacts for increased security
• Manage each device that logs in to your account
• Create organizations for your business
• Chat in your organization using an isolated encryption environment
• FIPS encryption capable

How does it work?

• When you sign up, you generate strong encryption keys on your device.
• Keys are protected with a password (using PBKDF2), so even if someone has your device, they'll have limited or no access.
• Each message and file is encrypted before it leaves your device, so it's unreadable by anyone else.
• All messages/files are encrypted with the participants' keys, so no one else can read them (using strong AES-256 GCM encryption).
• Adding your device to an existing account generates new unique keys, and securely transfers other keys at the time of creation, allowing you to use the same account on multiple devices.
• Once invited, joining an organization generates encryption keys just for that org, preventing the org from accessing your personal chats.

Encrypt SMS - Send Secret Text Messages

Encrypt SMS - Send Secret Text Messages

Sherwin Sowy

Ever wanted to send a text message or SMS that only you and your recipient can understand? Need to send confidential information via SMS, safe from anyone's prying eyes?

Encrypt SMS is a tool that allows you to encrypt messages that you send out with a password, and only those that have the same password can successfully decrypt and read the messages. (Recipient must have the same application on their iPhone.)

Encrypt SMS uses AES-256 encryption, a military-grade encryption composed of a 256 bit key to ensure that it will not be easily broken. The US government itself uses AES encryption to secure classified information! You too can have access to this high level of security with Encrypt SMS.

Unsend It, LLC

Unsend It™ is an encrypted messaging app allowing users to unsend, edit & self-destruct text messages at ANY time (even after being read/opened by the recipient). What's really cool is that only the sender needs the app.

You can send text messages to ANY of your contacts. If the recipient doesn't have the app, your message will be sent as a SMS text where they can read & reply to your encrypted message. Only users have the power to unsend, edit & self-destruct text messages!

This app is fully-loaded with additional features including customizable photo avatars, screen names that you can change on the fly (so you can control what/how your name appears to any recipient when sending a text), PIN-locking, audio messaging, screenshot detection & more!

*** IMPORTANT SETUP INFORMATION ***

Before sending your first message, change your screen name (in the 'settings' screen of the app) to something recognizable - we recommend your first & last name. You can change your screen name as many times as you want and the effect takes place in real-time! Have fun with it :)

You social? We're social. Follow us on Twitter @_unSend as we strive to prove our reason for existing by retweeting the best/worst autocorrect text nightmares, texting the wrong person (with often times confidential/compromising information), and of course, drunk texts people wish they could 'unsend'. Remember folks, this app could save your job, your relationship, your marriage, and some have even said this app could save your life (see the article about us over at 'Brit + Co' (brit.co)). Quite simply, we're just here to give you complete, end-to-end encrypted control over your messaging.

Redact - Secure Messenger

Redact - Secure Messenger

Redact

Redact is the world's first totally secure instant messenger application.

Using encryption, ciphers and peer to peer messaging, Redact sends heavily encrypted messages from one phone to another without passing through any central servers. Messages you have sent or received can be redacted from both handsets at the touch of a button with no method of recovery.

For more information visit the Redact website: www.redactapp.com

Features include:

1. Redact

You can redact any message sent using the application. Tap the redact button and the message is instantly redacted from your phone. The message is also redacted on your contact's device. There's no way to refuse a redaction or avoid it, so you can be confident your message is deleted forever.

2. Peer to Peer

All instant messaging apps store messages you're sending to your contacts. No matter how securely these messages are saved, they're vulnerable to hackers or government subpoenas. Redact stores no messages, contact information or usernames so there is no information to be stolen.

3. PINs

Redact never asks for a username, email of phone number, you're automatically assigned a PIN. Your unique number is never stored anywhere, and there is no recovery tool for hackers to exploit. Only you can change your alias, so you can be certain contacts aren't using your real name anywhere in the application.
