CHICAGO, March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Keeper Security, Inc., the creator of KeeperⓇ, the world's leading password manager and secure digital vault, today announced its newest application, KeeperChat. The revolutionary solution will provide the highest level of privacy, security, organization and storage for text messaging in the digital age.
Texting is the most frequently used communication method in the world with over seven trillion text messages sent last year alone. The speed, convenience and portability of texting has made it today's primary vehicle for sharing information. Messaging apps are so easy to use we don't even think twice about sending credit card numbers, social security numbers, bank account details, addresses, passwords, scanned documents and photos. However, the same products created to say 'hello' to friends and family were not built to properly handle sensitive personal information.
While much of our daily conversations may seem mundane and too trivial to hack or intercept, the reality is that our text conversations and threads offer an easy-to-find, single location for a wealth of personal details. The business model of numerous free messaging apps involves building a profile of your behavior and selling that profile to advertisers. It is not ensuring your messages, attachments and back-ups are secure and protected from prying eyes or hackers.
KeeperChat is super fast, easy to use and far more secure by providing a zero-knowledge security architecture that keeps conversations, files and photos in a completely private vault. Much like our password manager products, zero-knowledge means only the user has the ability to decrypt and access their information on their device. In addition to unmatched message security, KeeperChat includes desirable options such as:
- Private vault for messages, photos and videos
- Biometric login and self-destruct protection for vault
- Zero-knowledge, encrypted security architecture
- Message retraction and self-destruct timer
- Unlimited devices and sync
- Secure cloud backup
- Group chats
- Two-factor authentication
"We are extremely excited about KeeperChat - there is really nothing quite like it out there. We saw an opportunity to leverage our existing technology platform and create something special for our existing customer base and moreover, this massive market," said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-founder of Keeper Security, Inc. "Millions of people and thousands of businesses already use Keeper Password Manager and Digital Vault. Our customers are fanatical about their privacy and so are we. Keeper users will now be able to seamlessly and securely access their password vault and chat vault on all their mobile devices and computers."
"Finally, people who routinely share confidential information can use a product that protects their data with zero-knowledge security," said Craig Lurey, CTO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. "Nothing sent or received in KeeperChat could ever be viewed publicly or by anyone except the intended recipient. Users can now trust their messaging solution to be completely secure."
KeeperChat will be available to customers under a variety of plans. The KeeperChat Free plan includes 1GB of storage with limited retraction and self-destruct capabilities. KeeperChat Plus plans include unlimited use of all features and larger storage starting at $19.99 per year. KeeperChat is available on all device types, operating systems and can be purchased via Google Play, iTunes and Microsoft Windows 10 App Stores.
