Shady has absolutely no icon, and no open button, so how do you open the app? Shady uses telephone dialing code technology to open, the default dialing code is 123. After installing press the open button to activate your dialing code and you’re good to go with the ultimate stealth-messaging vault that only opens by dialing your customizable secret code into the telephone; it’s just like making a phone call.
What happens in Shady stays in Shady; any text, picture, or video message, to a Shady contact, automatically goes directly into Shady bypassing everything for extreme security.
