(MENAFNEditorial) SafeSwiss' world-leading encrypted messaging app extends support for a further four x Languages

Fast-growing SafeSwiss™ platform improves support for users in HongKong, Japan,Taiwan, India, Singapore by adding language support.

Key Points:

· SafeSwiss™ adds further language support for its secure end-to-end encryption platform for text messaging, voice calls and file transfer, building on its successful launch overseas in December 2016.

· Desktop and mobile versions of SafeSwiss™ use ephemeral messaging using cutting-edge end-to-end elliptic curve cryptography encryption, meaning messages can only be decrypted by the sender's or recipient's devices.

· SafeSwiss™ does not require any personal information (such as phone numbers or email addresses) to set up an account.

· All servers are based in Switzerland, which has the world's strongest privacy protections, placing them beyond the reach of domestic and foreign government 'backdoor decryption demands.

SafeSwiss™ is bringing the power of the world's most secure end-to-end encrypted platform for text chat, voice calls and file transfer to Hong Kong with the company's free-to-download messaging apps for Windows PCs, iOS and Android now supporting traditional Chinese language.

Along with the addition of language localization, SafeSwiss™ is also growing its secure messaging platform internationally by adding support for simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese Hindi and Japanese.

SafeSwiss™ stands apart from competitors (such as WeChat, Mobile QQ, Kakao Talk, WhatsApp or Line) because it offers complete end-to-end encryption that is far more robust than any other platform available in the market today.

The platform's robust security and privacy is based on ephemeral messaging using cutting-edge end-to-end (E2E) elliptic curve cryptography encryption, meaning messages can only be decrypted by the sender's or recipient's devices in both one-to-one and group communications.

in addition, users also have peace of mind that the primary servers used by SafeSwiss™ are in Zurich, Switzerland, which has some of the world's strictest privacy protections. This means the app and its servers are beyond the reach of domestic and international 'backdoor decryption demands.

To further protect users' privacy, SafeSwiss™ does not require users to hand over personal details such as email addresses, phone numbers or even have a SIM card to set up an account.

SafeSwiss™ also supports secure peer-to-peer (P2P) voice calls and group voice conference calls, along with many other features, including timed delete. And unlike its competitors, SafeSwiss™ delete really means delete.

The addition of traditional Chinese language support builds on the successful launch of its total E2E-encrypted secure communication apps on iOS and Android platforms in December 2016, following four years of development. A version of the app for Windows PCs has also been recently released.

The SafeSwiss™ platform now works across 16 languages in total, including Arabic, Bosnian, Croatian, Chinese (Mandarin) Chinese (Cantonese), English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Ukrainian, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.

Quotes about PC version release and increased language support

Speaking about the additional language support, Co-founder and CEO of SafeSwiss Secure Communications AGTimGallagher said: "We have invested a great deal in creating a friendly and effortless user experience and user interface. We wantSafeSwiss™to become accessible to everyone and so with these additional languages now supported opens our amazing platform up to users in India, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Japan & Singapore.

"We all come to expect privacy in our daily life this should also extend to our digital life,SafeSwiss™ certainly goes a long way in minimising your digital footprint.

'Creating a new SafeSwiss™ account is easy. Users can select their own unique SafeSwiss™ ID, and are not required to hand over personal details such as email addresses, phone numbers or even have a SIM card.

'This goes a long way in eliminating some of the well-documented vulnerabilities associated with email/phone authentication, as experienced by some of our competitors.

Gallagher added:"Many people are unaware of just how many providers only encrypt messages and files in transit, meaning that whatever is sent can be extremely vulnerable while sitting unencrypted on a server, in the interval after it's sent and before it's delivered.

'They are also unaware of how deleted messages might remain on servers. Almost daily, we hear stories about hacking, leaking of sensitive information and MiM or MiTM attacks, with stories including some of the leading, supposedly secure providers. SafeSwiss™ solves these problems.

Quotes about government surveillance and backdoors:

In recent times, there have been high-profile debates about government surveillance and encryption around the world, with concerns about the issue growing in China & Hong Kong regions.

On the subject, Gallagher said: 'Banning or legislating encryption apps is not the answer, this is a true paradox of security against privacy. Legislating against cryptography will drive encryption underground. It will open the doors to malicious attacks from adversary's everywhere.

'Encryption not only applies to communication. It's used in banking, purchasing goods online and in FOBs for keyless ignition systems.

'A good preview on how backdoors operate is to look at the US transport security administration (TSA) requirement that all baggage passing or travelling within the USA must be equipped with travel sentry locks that are designed to allow anyone with a readily available master key access. As a result, a CNN investigation found thousands of incidents of theft.

'To consider governments to be a trusted third party is extremely misguided. Governments would be better placed to put resources into the source of the problem the continued brainwashing of predominately youth under the guise of medieval religion.

'We most certainly are not anti-Government nor anti-police. We are pro privacy, and we firmly believe that both privacy and freedom of speech are two basic, fundamental human rights.

Gallagher concluded: "Protection of messages, voice calls and files means end-to-end encryption, such as ours at SafeSwiss, where only the intended recipient can view anything sent or hear any voice call. Add the reassurance that the SafeSwiss servers managing any key exchange are located within Europe and you have a world-beating level of protection."

SafeSwiss™ was co-founded in 2015 byTimGallagher (CEO), Emir Rizvanovic (CTO), and Kerry Bird (CFO) following earlier (2012) completion of a Series A round of funding within its group of current stakeholders.

Since December 2016, the SafeSwiss app has been offered on the iOS and Android platforms. The service is free to personal users, with business and enterprise services also due soon, along with a range of new features.

SafeSwiss offers state of the art end-to-end encryption, including secure P2P voice, for text chat messages and voice calls on a one-to-one and group basis, and for file transmission.
