Our app is finally out there and available to download on iPhone and iPad. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
So what is Secret Square anyway? It’s a private messaging app unlike any other — we call it “the future of mobile messaging”. Unlike other systems, we make no compromises when it comes to your privacy. We don’t know your real name, your email address, or your phone number. We don’t scrape your phone contact list or connect to your Facebook account. Your messages are encrypted through the magic of “Elliptic Curve public key cryptography”. That means that your messages can’t be read outside of on your phone. It’s simply impossible.
We get a lot of questions about how to connect to friends. Connecting on Secret Square actually requires that two people meet up in person and scan each other’s phones. We call it scanning your friend’s Secret Square. Isn’t that old-fashioned? Yes, but it’s the only way that you can be sure the person you’re talking to is really who you think it is and that the encryption key you’re using is authentic.
Best of all, the app is super-simple, quick and fun to use! Messages disappear two minutes after they’re opened so we think you’ll start some intense conversations. Stop reading this and start hitting up your friends with some real talk.
We’ve enjoyed building Secret Square but this is just the beginning of the journey. The best is yet to come.
