• No more sensitive messages staying around indefinitely
• Send map locations encrypted and controlled.
• Peer-to-peer key management – keys are on each device, not on our servers

SILENT TEXT allows you to fully control your text communications. As a Silent Circle member using Silent Text, you can transmit encrypted text messages with attached files up to 100 MB between Silent Circle members worldwide.

You decide how long your text can be seen with BURN NOTICE or manually delete sent messages off both your device and the recipient’s device simultaneously. Sent a sensitive document to the wrong person? Made a typo or modified the contract? Simply BURN what was sent with the touch of your screen.

Messages are encrypted on your device. New encryption keys are negotiated for each conversation. Every Silent Text message is encrypted to a new key that is only used once and then destroyed. There are no keys held anywhere after the conversation is complete.

Created by original innovators and globally recognized encryption experts using encryption algorithms Elliptic Curve P-384 & AES256.

Published, peer-reviewed encryption - our founders are the creators of PGP and ZRTP.

(Non-NIST support in v2) Ur Silent Circle online account can be protected by two-factor authentication upon loggin (eg, via the Google Authenticator app). I'm told that version 2 of this Silent Text app (like the current version of the associated Silent Phone app) will support encryption algorythms (eg, Twofish) that hav not been approved by NIST (and therefore are not likely NSA snoopable). NSA may be throwing a wrench into the gears of these SC coms--patience, this is the best we hav now.

Not free I wanted this app, app store has it listed as free, but you have to sign up and pay for the service. I'll just suck it up until I can afford the Black phone, then the service is included...bc it is their phone. Rather have the total package.

Defunct With much sadness I must report that Silent Text remains as unreliable for comms since launch. "Protocol contention", "Error- Key not found", "HTTP: Error 403 Forbidden" are words users will read more often than any messages texting counterparts attempt to exchange. The failure rate for message delivery/receipt is *extremely high*. Despite much promise from the Silent Circle team, the app continues to defenestrate its loyal early adaptors by underperforming whilst trumpeting their "achievements".

Need update (App version 1.5) I was thrilled to try this app but was a bit disappointed by its performance. After chatting for about 15 min i started getting some protocol errors and not connected errors. I also tried the iOS version which seemed to be a lot more polished and did not run into any problem so far. The android version seriously need an update asap.
