Silent Circle - Security, Simplicity and Service

Silent Text Features:
• Intuitive and simple to use
• Burn Notice feature allows you to have any message you send self-destruct after a time delay
• 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
• No one but you and the person you are texting can decrypt and read the information
• Send any file up to 100 MB
• Revolutionizes secure business and personal communications with a tap of the finger

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.

As seen in Forbes, CNN, The Register, Business Insider, Gizmag, and other media outlets around the globe.

Not free It requires you to purchase a plan.

Not free Shouldn't say app is for free secure texting if it won't work without a payment to the app, for phone minutes between $10-$25 per month.

Unmitigated Disaster. One would be forgiven for reasonably expecting after a full year of 'deployment' in the field, this app might finally work! Silent Circle obviously has other plans because this app cannot reliably fulfill the most basic communication function. My team has had a terrible experience attempting to utilise this product and it's about time Silent Circle was called out on this ongoing, unmitigated disaster called Silent Text. Do not rely on this app - unless you're asking to get burned!

(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.
