Skype used to have a reputation as a safe and secure voice communications tool. Sadly, that is no longer true. A National Security Agency document published this week by the German news magazine Der Spiegel from the trove provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden shows that the agency has full access to voice, video, text messaging, and file sharing from targeted individuals over Microsoft’s Skype service.

The result is practically uncrackable encryption for […]
Wiper is not the only cell phone app that sends secure texts, photos, and and then deletes them from the recipient’s phone later. However, it is unusual that it also creates encrypted voice calls over wi-fi connections. Wiper is available free of charge for both Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) devices. Most apps delete the messages a set time after they’re read, but Wiper lets you remove […]
After last year’s revelations about U.S. Internet surveillance raised interest in privacy tools, Google and Yahoo both announced they were working on software to let people who use their e-mail services easily exchange encrypted messages. Now a prototype browser extension called ShadowCrypt, made by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Maryland, goes even further. It makes it easy to send and receive encrypted text on […]
