We should all be concerned: our personal information is being spied on or subjected to theft – not only by hackers but also by the many agencies of our own government. As concerning are the activities of foreign states. Some governments now regularly target private citizens, their businesses and their personal and professional relationships. Russia and China are widely suspected of running sophisticated cyber-espionage programmes.
In the deep, dark corners of the Web (the Dark Net) there exists a market for an individual’s private information. Money changes hands in return for people’s medical and financial details, their movements, their relationships, even their opinions. This information is easy to collect with the help of mobile phone surveillance devices, such as StingRay. Equipment like this can be as small as a paperback book and is routinely carried by anyone who wants to extract data from your smartphone. Corporate and government spies, private investigators, journalists, cyber-criminals and hackers can now all easily access your data.
The growth in the use of StingRay and similar devices has largely been kept secret from the public. However, these devices pose a clear threat to anybody with an unprotected telephone. Walk down a street with a smartphone and you are now vulnerable to electronic mugging. A mugging that may steal a wide range of extremely sensitive information – including the very conversation that you are having whilst you are being hacked.
Think about the problem of fraud and, increasingly, blackmail. According to the Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report (2017), the annual revenue of the cyber- crime industry is estimated to be more than $450bn. This is compelling evidence that we are suffering a cyber- crime wave of pandemic proportions. If this was a disease, you would not walk out of your door in the morning …
The list just goes on and on, there is not anybody that would not benefit, from knowing that all their communications were completely and 100% private and secure.
The threat from cyber criminals’ activity is always in the news in one way or another these days and it is a FACT that were this threat a disease, we would not go outside or leave our homes for fear of contamination. Cyber Criminality has reached PANDEMIC PROPORTIONS and is sweeping over the globe. So IMMUNISE YOURSELF NOW. Install the PRYVATE application and services.
After all how many times have you said to yourself, if only I had known then what I know now, or in hindsight I would have done this or that, or I wish I had done something about it earlier and now it is too late. We have all said these things many times before!
What’s available now?
Pryvate launches with Secure Voice, Secure Conference, Secure Video, Secure IM, Secure Email, Secure File Transfer and Secure File Storage
Great easy to use encryption Works without issue on my HTC ONE M8. Video quality is impressive. The conference calling capability has proven to be an unexpected bonus.
Pryvate security app Fantastic, works seamlessly on my galaxy note 3.. I have tried a few of these and this is by far the best!
Calls are crystal clear!! The call quality on this app better than my default carrier's call quality! Also it allows a sense of comfort knowing my communication is encrypted. Love the idea
This is excellent! It seems that developers have been hard at work debugging their app. With many useful features in the pipeline and being crypto friendly this is the communications mobile app to go for.
Looking towards the next version with the Crypto Wallet and Fiat/Crypto exchange. Even the last version seems a lot more stable, sorting out a few bugs in the old voice comms tools
