Montréal, Canada - January 31, 2016Secure Group, a leading provider of encrypted communications, announced today a new release of its encrypted communication suite Secure Pack, available for Android devices and the company proprietary Secure Phone line of smartphones. The bundle consists of three applications: Secure Email, Secure Chat and Secure Voice, each offering the highest level of privacy protection in its field. All three applications are available for download on Google Play and offer a seven-day trial period.
Secure Chat v1.11.0
- New folder structure
The latest version of the encrypted IM application Secure Chat introduces a completely reorganized folder structure when handling attachments. Until now, all exchanged files through Secure Chat were listed by date in the “Shared Media and Files” folder located in the Account Settings menu. Now, in addition to this folder, the user has also a separate “Shared Media and Files” folder for each conversation, so they can easily see in one place all files that have been shared with a chosen contact or group.
- Mute notifications
Mute notification is a new feature designed to further protect the privacy of Secure Chat users. It allows users to disable notifications per conversation and for a specific time. A muted chat is badged with the number of inbound messages. If hidden, a notification icon for new messages is displayed in-app, and users need to enter a hiding / unhiding PIN code to make the chat visible and read the messages.
Lastly, with this release we fixed some bugs and introduced improvements in the “hidden” functionality. Being one of the newest security features of Secure Chat, it allows users to make a particular conversation or contact completely invisible in-app. The data is “hidden” behind a secret PIN code, which only the user knows, and can be revealed only after entering.
Secure Voice v2.10.2
Every month Secure Group updates its encrypted applications to make them faster, securer and better. The Secure Voice v2.10.2 release includes mainly stability improvements. Also, improvements of the debugging mechanism have allowed us to find and fix bugs quickly. Secure Voice employs the protection of the ZRTP end-to-end encryption protocol and offers voice, video and conference calls over the Internet.
Secure Email v1.29.0
The PGP encrypted client for Android and Secure Phone is updated with better functionality for deleting emails. It allows the user to select whether to delete a message permanently or to move it in the “Delete items” folder. This flow is more intuitive, and also minimizes the risk of losing an important information if the user accidentally deletes an email.
