Features of Confide
Confide utilizes battle-tested, military-grade cryptography to keep your messages safe and secure. We combine this with a simple and intuitive user experience to provide superior security, with no configuration required.
All messages between confide users are end-to-end encrypted. Encryption keys are generated locally on each device and the private key never leaves the device, ensuring that only the intended recipients can read your messages.
Transport layer security
All communication goes through transport layer security (tls), preventing any possible man-in-the-middle attack and providing yet another layer of security, privacy, and data integrity.
Encryption is an important component of confidentiality but it’s not the only one. After a message is decrypted it becomes vulnerable. It can be archived, printed, and even forwarded. But confide messages self-destruct. After they are read once, they are gone. We delete them from our servers and wipe them from the device.
Screenshots have the potential of making the impermanent permanent. Confide prevents screenshots on most of our platforms. Where prevention is not technically feasible, our patent-pending reading experience ensures that only a sliver of the message is unveiled at a time and that the sender’s name is not visible. We also kick the recipient out of the message and notify the sender that a screenshot has been attempted.
Photos, documents, voice & group messaging
Send text, photos, documents (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and pdf), and voice messages to individuals or groups. Like the text, all photos, documents, and voice messages are encrypted, ephemeral, and screenshot-protected. Communicate in whatever format you’d like, without leaving a copy behind.
