  • Help us spread the word to other researchers. is accessible anywhere in the world 24 x 7. It is important to understand the difference between "Protected" and "Unprotected" messages. While "Unprotected" messages provide more protection than unencrypted email, they are not 100% safe. They are more convenient because you don't need to use any passkeys. However, for iron clad, 100% secure communications, I recommend that you use "Protected" messages. You can use a single passkey for all ThreadThat "Protected" messages or you can create different passkeys for different recipients. Regardless of which way you do it, "Protected" messages are the most secure way to communicate. We make it easy to manage passkeys with our unique KeyBox technology.

Beware of applications that claim to be secure just because they use SSL (https connections). SSL only protects your messages while in transit from your PC to the server. For example, gmail uses SSL for all email access. What you must realize is that your messages are not encrypted while they are stored on Google's email servers. Anyone working at Google with server access can invade your privacy. If you use, all messages and files are encrypted while "at rest" on our servers. If you use "Protected" messages, even the encryption keys are encrypted by the passkeys known only by you and those with whom you communicate.
