Keeper Security, the makers of the popular Keeper Password Manager, have come up with a new app for iPhone and Android smartphones called KeeperChat. It is a secure texting app that allows you to communicate with other people over a highly encrypted internet connection. Apart from sending and receiving text messages securely, it also provides 1GB of cloud storage for everyone. You can store your messages, pictures or other media files securely in this cloud storage account.
If you have already created an account for Keeper Password Manager, then you do not need to create a new account and can use the same Keeper account for KeeperChat as well. But if you do not have any Keeper Security account, then you can go ahead and create a new account using just your email address and a master password. Make sure that you do not forget this master password because if you enter the password wrong a few times, then KeeperChat itself will initiate a self-destruction sequence. After that, you will have to start all over again and install KeeperChat once more.
KeeperChat works only if both the people trying to communicate have KeeperChat installed on their devices. The messages are encrypted using a 256-bit AES encryption that cannot be broken in real-time even by very powerful computers. Since the messages are decrypted on the devices and not over a network, your messages stay safe from man-in-the-middle attacks. Furthermore, you can also create self-destructing messages that are auto-erased once the recipient reads them.
Unlike the regular text messages that cannot be stopped once you hit the send button, you can retract your messages anytime in KeeperChat and they will disappear from KeeperChat. In the free version of the KeeperChat, you get 1 GB of cloud storage space, but you can also get the paid subscription that brings an unlimited use of the KeeperChat app.
You can get KeeperChat from https://keeperchat.com/.
