Contemporary encryption is practically unbreakable. Because of that, attackers don’t bother breaking it but look for ways to bypass it and still access users’ data. Whether these workarounds work or not, comes down to the implementation of encryption algorithms. Here’s what the methods are and why they wouldn’t work against Secure Group’s products.
The factory reset function of Android smartphones is supposed to delete all apps, files, and settings from the device and restore it to an out-of-the-box state. The process, however, is flawed and leaves a door to recover data. This is why we created the Secure Wipe app for our encrypted communication devices, Secure Phone.
Encrypting your communications guarantees anyone who intercepts them will not be able to read your messages. But what about the data that stays on your device? Chat histories, contacts, stored files, etc. – all possibly sensitive information. This is where device encryption and remote wipe come in to protect your stored data.
