Conclave - Powerful Messaging

Conclave - Powerful Messaging

Conclave LLC

Send your best, unsend your worst, and save it all where only you can see it. Conclave's secure messaging and file management utilities let you play with power. See how it feels, for free!

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/


Features:

• Unsend messages you no longer want to share
• 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.

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.

Smoke Confidential

Smoke Confidential

Introspective Networks

Smoke Confidential is the most secure messaging client available. Designed from the ground up for secure messaging, it makes sure only you and the party on the other end can see the text. Using real, symmetric encryption via a One Time Pad, data is sent across the web in a way that is proven mathematically to be uncrackable. Moreover, the data is not simply encrypted, it is literally hidden in the network as it’s moved around in a way that, when combined with uncrackable encryption, makes a man in the middle attack practically impossible. Messages are actually double encrypted - once for the system and again for client to client communications. This means your communication is completely secret between two users.

The interface is also designed to make sure that sessions are accepted prior to messaging. This ensures that the person on the other end is in a suitable location to join the secure conversation. There is no caching or storing of messages. This means messages, by default, are confidential and kept between the two parties.

Smoke Confidential is a breakthrough app, ideal for Legal, Healthcare, Business, HR, Banking, Investors, Military and any group or individual requiring a confidential messaging platform.

Smoke Confidential is made possible by patented STOP technology (patent US8995652) . This is the first and only known technology to allow a real One Time Pad to be used across a network securely.

Internet communications just became secure...

Get more contacts with a monthly subscription to the Smoke Confidential service: 20 contacts for $1.99, 50 contacts for $4.99, or unlimited contacts for $9.99. All subscriptions will be charged to your iTunes account upon confirmation of purchase and will automatically renew monthly at the original rate within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Subscriptions can be managed and auto-renewal turned off through Account Settings.
