Communication security is the primary focus on all the messaging services. Though Popular communication apps like Facebook, Gmail, WhatsApp, etc., are secured, hackers always target the applications with more users. So, choosing a simple and secured app is the best way to keep your communications safe. Previously, I wrote about Wickr, a secured instant messaging app which encrypts and self destruct the sent messages from your Android device. Today I’ve come with a new secured messaging application called “Unseen”, an Iceland based website, helps you to safely communicate on the Internet.
Unseen has both free and premium versions available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. Also, you can access the application from its web interface. If you are a Thunderbird user, you can add this app using PGP Plugins to secure your email. To start with the app, first you need to sign up with your email id. After you complete the registration process, it will take you to the home page as shown in the screenshot above. It uses 4096 bit encryption technique to securely transfer your messages. The app lets you make a phone call, send instant message and video chat with other Unseen users.
Free version of the app has some limitations. Premium users will have an encrypted email service where as free users will have only the basic security. Also, premium users can transfer files up to 40GB and get storage of around 2GB for the mails, where as free users get only 25MB of storage space. You can add your contacts and create different groups to have a group chat, but the people in your contacts also need to create an account in Unseen. Only email communication is allowed between Unseen and third party applications, the rest of the features need an account in the application.
You have to pay $49 for a lifetime license in Unseen. In turn, it offers secure video calling, emails and instant messaging features. For personal use, the free user account is enough for all your activities. If you want to use it for your company or want to add all your project members, choosing a premium account is the best choice.
