Recently, there was a widely publicised successful hacking to accounts on two well known networking and messenger software apps using known weaknesses and vulnerabilities of little known international network called SS7. The technique is very simple and very known to spies and hackers. The technique capitalizes on using mobile phone numbers for verification, and end-to-end encryption. Shortly after, there was a news report that the Electronic Military Intelligence of certain country have hacked the accounts for 15 millions users of one of those two well known messenger software app. The President of the company that developed the software app have denied the news. However, there was not any independent reports to confirm either side of the story.
The Whatsapp software app uses the above mentioned verification and encryption techniques. From the technical point of view, it is well known to the experts in the field that the above mentioned verification and encryption approaches leaves the users easy target and prey for spies and hackers.
This app provides a second completely independent layer of proven military/intelligence/security grade encryption (using AES-256) for messages sent on the Whatsapp app. If a spy or a hacker is successful in gaining access to the user's account, the spy/hacker will not to be to read the message because it is completely encrypted by independent key. This app will need the support our free app SecuredPGPWhatMessages to be installed on the device.

Therefore, this app will encrypt only messages for Whatsapp app. Users interested in attaching encrypted files should look at our other apps SecuredEmail and SecuredIM which can attach encrypted files of any format.
On some devices, this app can not launch the Whatsapp app. Therefore, this app will copy the encrypted message to the clipboard (i.e. buffer). The user can then paste the encrypted message into the space for the regular message, and then send it in a regular fashion to the contact who owns the encryption key used in encrypting the message.
This app is available for monthly subscription. The value of the monthly subscription depends on the location of the user.
