Security 101: Secure Communications

After the Snowden NSA disclosures, there have been a bunch of attempts to solve the rampant abuse by our security establishment through legislation. That's a lost cause. The only real solution is a technical solution, demanding applications that actually protect our privacy. MaidSafe is a perfect example of this with their aim to decentralize the internet and encrypt everything, but it's still far from being rolled out. For now, we have to rely on the tools that are currently available. That starts with secure messaging.

iMessage, BBM, Snapchat, Whatsapp, CyberDust, and Wickr, are all chat apps that only give you the illusion of privacy. They are not actually end to end encrypted and are not open source, both the company and the US government can read every message you send. When it comes to security, open source is always better, it means that anyone can inspect the app's code and make sure there are no backdoors stealing your info.

Furthermore, any app or website located in America should be considered insecure, because our government has already been caught forcing companies to put backdoors in their product, under threat of jail time, while not allowing the company to tell their customers about it. Source- Lavabit.com

If you use texting or any of the mainstream messaging apps, every single one of your conversations are currently being saved in huge servers. They will be indexed for eternity and will be easily searchable by those in power. Surveillance, at its core, is a key tool for subjugation of a population. If you don't believe that, then maybe you should read 1984.

If you care about your privacy, then https://surespot.me/ is a great option and it is available for both iPhone and Android. It is completely free and relies on donations to survive. Naturally, they accept Bitcoin donations as well as traditional payment methods. It also has an encrypted voice messaging feature, which you can enable with a one time payment of $1.99. Click here to see how SureSpot works.

I know most people don't give a shit, and that's the sad reality of the situation. Hopefully this message will reach those who do.
