Key features of Squealock
We Shrink Your Digital Footprint
Unlike most secure messaging apps, we do not require access to your phone contacts' list. While using Squealock, if someone manages to take a screenshot, use a screen recorder, or an external device to record your message contents , your risk for self-incrimination could be greatly reduced, as contents would appear as from an anonymous source (your user ID). When you create a Squealock account, you have full crontrol over who you give your SLID to (preferably in person). While some secure peer to peer messaging apps may enable encrypted communication between devices without the need to create an account or use a remote server, they may still be vulnerable to Trojan and Keylogger attachments, exchange hardware information, and primary identifiers do not change.
No Phone Number or Email Required
We do not require your phone number or email in order for you to communicate securely using Squealock. You only need to create a unique user ID or SLID that can be changed at any time (patent pending). Once changed, the old SLID becomes invalid and cannot be used by others to message you or create another account; a better alternative to using burner phone numbers which do not secure your communication, nor shrink your digital footprint or prevent access to your phone contacts. Unlike most messaging apps, we also discourage profile pictures to keep your identity private, while enabling the secure transmission of images, voice and video recordings.
You Enjoy First Class Security
In addition to securing your communication (voice and video calls and attachments) with end-to-end military grade encryption, all messages and file contents self-destruct once read, and do not remain on our servers once delivered. Squealock's strong password requirement and system timout functionality ensure that only you can access and read your messages, even if someone else is able to unlock and access your device. We also limit attachment size in order to prevent a known vulnerability which could corrupt encrypted files, and affect the application's performance. We do not store your private decryption key on our servers.
Signature Selective Blocking
Squealock boasts a unique "Selective Blocking" functionality (patent pending) which allows users to not have to block contacts completely, but to rather independently block their ability to use features such as sending you images, voice and video recordings, or making voice and video calls to your user ID. Your contact is informed that you are currently not accepting calls, or certain file types, when they attempt to call or send you a file while the block is active. To activate the block, simply press the corresponding icon to make it turn red, and confirm your selection.
