German Cybersecurity Company, Crypviser GmbH, has just launched the world’s first decentralised, blockchain authenticated, unblockable and anonymous instant messenger with the release of Crypviser Secure Messenger for iOS and a public beta for Android. They claim to be the first “true” end-to-end encrypted messenger.
The market for secure communication is growing rapidly, with clients and colleagues working in different cities or countries and family and friends spread across the globe. People already have convenient and speedy ways to communicate, but the lack of privacy is a concern, particularly in business. Crypviser say that instant messengers already on the market do offer end-to-end encryption, but it is based on technology that is decades old. Most of them are free and don’t have advertisements, however, they make their money by selling off your personal and business information.
Most Private And Secure Communication On The Planet
According to a blog post, Crypviser believe that everyone has the right to security and privacy and that they are perfectly set up to offer users the “most private and secure communication on the planet”. Each chat, call, video or data transfer, is secure, encrypted and private.
Instead of adding layers upon layers of extra security on top of an inherently flawed protocol, Crypviser started from scratch using blockchain technology. They’ve developed a Blockchain Authentication Model that eliminates man-in-the-middle attacks (where an attacker secretly relays and possibly alters the communication between two parties who believe they are directly communicating with each other) creating a true end-to-end encryption model. By setting up contacts via the blockchain, the transfer of public keys is authenticated by the nodes, meaning the keys cannot be altered, manipulated, or exchanged for anyone else’s via such an attack.
Features, along with encryption, include the ability to hide or lock chats,privacy control, unlimited data transfer and screenshot control. Self destructing messages allow the messages you send to self destruct after the receiver reads them, the user sets the time, then they are destroyed on both ends. Crypviser say their messenger costs the same as one cup of coffee a month – a small price to pay to ensure privacy.
