Sometimes it’s easy to think that we live in a world where privacy no longer exists. Whether you’re talking about celebrity photo leaks, credit card breaches or Edward Snowden, it can feel like nothing is truly private, hidden or sacred anymore.
VYSK Communications is in the business of making our phones more private and helping us feel more secure. Vysk designed a privacy solution for iPhone and Samsung smartphones built around both hardware and software because it believes that true privacy starts with a hardware-based solution to lock down your phone, and then use an embedded processor inside the case to encrypt your calls.
“The EP1 Privacy System was specifically designed to combat things like photo hacking,” said Victor Cocchia, CEO of Vysk Communications. “This isn’t just an issue for celebrities anymore. It has become a common tactic for cyber bullying, cyber stalkers, and worse.”
Vysk Private Gallery
The Vysk Private Gallery app secures your photos and videos with a password–protected PIN and encrypts all data in the cloud. Each photo and video is saved as encrypted data, rather than the physical image, which means hackers won’t be able to decipher the information. Sound original? That’s because it is; this is the only mobile app on the market to offer consumers true privacy protection. You can also share photos via social media channels, email, AirDrop and text message, all without leaving the app.
Need to use the “nuclear option”? No problem! A built-in self-destruct function lets you completely erase the entire contents of your galleries through a special emergency PIN.
Access to the app is available for free when you purchase an EP1 Privacy Case. That case (which also doubles your phone’s battery life) retails for $119.99 and is available now in red, blue, gold and black on Vysk.com.
