How SecureCrypt is Defending Your Privacy

Updated: 4 days ago

Privacy is something we believe everyone has the fundamental human right to. SecureCrypt was founded for this reason.

From business avoiding the looming threat of cooperate espionage, journalists protecting their confidential sources, lawyers conversing with their clients, to investment fund managers conversing and exchanging privileged information between partners and clients, each need privacy to do their jobs. Even in your day to day conversations with friends and family. Would you be comfortable knowing someone is reading your every message, and listening to your calls?

The number of data breaches through just September 30, 2021 has exceeded the total number of events in full-year 2020 by 17 percent (1,291 breaches in 2021 compared to 1,108 breaches in 2020).

As technology can be used to erode our privacy by large technology corporations each with their own agendas and for profit models. However, technology can also be used to help protect your privacy. SecureCrypt recognizes the power of a perfectly secured encrypted messaging solution, and we have built our solution to help users regain their privacy.

Adopting Secure Solutions

We can turn to technology to help us solve this problem, but technology cannot fully do this alone. To take control of our privacy, we need to use technology ourselves to be proactive.

One of the ways you can be proactive is by using a secure messaging solution and SecureCrypt was engineered to protect your privacy.

This is our number one goal.

We do not just rely on strong encryptions and hardware, but on the philosophical approach of the company.

We never want or need to know what you are doing or who you are. It is not our business to know. SecureCrypt's approach is one of Zero-Trust; we believe your data belongs to you,

and we enforce this belief.

We do not sell your data, we maintain our own infrastructure and our highly advanced complete mobile security solution is the most secure on the market.

No complex enrolment procedure, our interface is simple, clean, and intuitive. Our application is lightweight and is optimized for highly secure data exchange.

How SecureCrypt protects your privacy

When SecureCrypt was designed, the protection of the user’s privacy was always the first thought. Here are some of the features that will protect you privacy with SecureCrypt:

⦁ Every ID is made of a 6 character username, of both letters and numbers, which randomly assigned.

⦁ Your ECC ID is not connected to any information that may be personally identifiable to you, such as your phone number or email. Not even your name is attached.

⦁ There is no phone number required at signup.

⦁ There are no location permissions requested by SecureCrypt

⦁ All GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, and other sensors are disabled from within the kernel level of the secured OS.

⦁ There is no function to browse through ECC ID’s, no list containing each one. So your ECC ID is not discoverable to anyone.

⦁ Anyone who wishes to communicate must be approved by you before you can start talking. And if you wish to message someone who you do not have in your contact list, you have to ask before you can start chatting with them, via a contact request with a custom note you can send to them, identifying yourself.

⦁ All message metadata is fully end-to-end encrypted to make sure any part of your information cannot be seen, stolen and used maliciously by third parties.

⦁ Every part of the SecureCrypt system is made so that we never collect any of your metadata or personally identifiable information, let alone store it. We believe that both your business and personal life should be private if you want it to be. We believe it is integral to protect your privacy, as it is a major part of protecting your business, identity and your security.

⦁ Tamper-Proof hardware with Secure Boot, Enhanced Memory Protections, Device Integrity Checks, Brute-Force Password Attack Protections and much more.

⦁ Encrypted containers set on your device allow the SecureCrypt Encrypted Communications application to sit inside of this secured, encrypted partition for an additional layer of security not found on regular or other commercial devices.

However, even the best privacy protections don’t do much if they are not supported by just as strong security measures.

Keeping your information secure

When we built SecureCrypt we always assume that every part has been compromised and from this build protections in multiple layers from the device upwards. This is our “zero-trust” approach. From this starting point, we know that every single part is secure, from the OS to the app. With every layer of security we place, it makes sure that no matter what the privacy protections cannot be compromised.

When it comes to the devices we use, we only choose from BlackBerry, Samsung, and other compatible models. With each device containing tamper-resistance, picking only those that pass stringent and rigorous security tests.

Any feature that poses a potential risk to privacy or security, such as biometrics, Bluetooth and screenshots, are disabled.

Via highly secure SIM-based APN settings, each device connects to our secure, private mobile data network, which also uses multiple VPNs on device, and on the SIM.

Regardless of how the device in question connects to the internet, 4096-bit SSL encryption is used to encrypt all communications, as well as passing through additional proxies as to give full network protection. To help stop against malware or phishing attacks, devices are restricted from having free internet access. Any unknown device will be unable to connect to our servers, keeping your device protected, as well as the network.

When SecureCrypt is installed, it is placed into a secure container within the device. This is so the app is always protected in the unlikely case malware would be to compromise the phone.

Anyone trying to use brute force attacks will fail and any attempt to use an insecure connection to login will not succeed, both thanks to the protections put in place. When logged in, every message, file or piece of information is securely encrypted with a 512 bit ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography) which utilizes a proprietary encryption algorithm, which has been audited and proven safe, and free of any “backdoors”.

And to make sure that your information is truly safe, we make sure to encrypt metadata too, something other secure messaging apps don’t do. Despite the network connection already being encrypted, we want to make sure no matter what, your information is secure and private.

Included in the app is several failsafe’s, put in place to make sure that your information and messages remain private. An ECC ID can be associated with only one device at any time, which makes sure that no one can ever attempt to impersonate you or any other user. If someone attempts to input an incorrect password in 5 times, then the protections for brute force attacks will engage, deleting all chats, data and information from the device, to ensure that if anyone tries to break in, your data will not be in their hands. SecureCrypt allows for you to be able to fully delete the app with a duress password, or an in-app Panic Wipe; a feature designed for emergencies.

SecureCrypt is a privately distributed security solution, not available in an app store as we would have no idea if it was then being installed onto secure devices. If it is installed onto a compromised device, any amount of security apps will not be able to keep that phone secure, as everything on it is compromised by malware, including the app.

Security and privacy are central to our philosophy

We always believe in making sure privacy is protected, something we have shown in our stance against putting backdoors into encryption solutions or apps. For us, protecting privacy and protecting encryption go hand-in-hand. But between malicious apps, hacks and even social media, our privacy is slowly being eroded. SecureCrypt stands against this trend and for creating platforms and apps that keeps us secure and more protected, not less.

Privacy is a must.
