San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Today, Vysk Communications (Vysk) announces that its new Everyday Privacy Charging Case (EP1) has launched exclusively at select Best Buy, Best Buy Mobile specialty stores, and at BestBuy.com. The EP1 case is one component of the Vysk Privacy System, which uses a combination of hardware and software to provide powerful security and privacy protection for your smartphone.
“We’re proud to launch the EP1 Case with Best Buy. It is a pillar in the consumer electronics space,” says Victor Cocchia, CEO of Vysk Communications. “The invasion of privacy, whether it be cyber bullying, cyber stalking, stolen credit card information or just a nosey coworker is a serious concern for everyone. With the EP1 case, we want to give people the tools to regain the feeling of privacy in their lives. As an organization, we feel that developing privacy solutions for something we all use every day, our smartphone, is the perfect starting point.”
The EP1 starts with a hardware solution that locks down your iPhone’s front and rear cameras with innovative, patent-pending camera shutters. Once closed, you are protected from someone capturing unauthorized photos or videos of you and your family. The EP1 not only offers first-to-market privacy features, but it also makes sure you have all the power you need to make it through your day, adding up to an additional 120 percent battery power, as well as serving as a protective case for the iPhone® 5/5s.
The software component includes the Vysk Private Gallery app, as well as the Vysk Private Text app, which locks down a user’s photos, videos and text messages. With the Vysk Private Gallery app, users can transfer images and videos from their current photo gallery or take photos using the built-in camera interface and store them inside the encrypted, password-protected application. Users can organize photos into two separate galleries, each with its own unique access PIN. A self-destruct function allows users to completely erase the entire contents of the galleries instantly and permanently. Additional functionality includes sharing photos via social media channels, email, AirDrop and text message, all without leaving the app.
In addition, data backed up to iCloud will also be safe from prying eyes, as it is transferred as encrypted information, rather than a picture from your standard photo gallery. Even if a user’s account were hacked, a cyber criminal would not be able to decipher the photos or videos stored within the Vysk Private Gallery app.
The Private Text app provides end-to-end encryption of text messages, allowing the sender and receiver to exchange private messages over the Vysk Privacy Network. With a password protection feature, users are able to set passwords to access the app, ensuring private conversations are protected from prying eyes. Other features of the app include: screenshot notification, snoop protection, the ability to delete all data within the app, disabled message forwarding and the ability to send and receive encrypted photos within the app.
Users will receive full access to the Vysk Private Gallery app and Vysk Private Text app with the purchase of an EP1 Everyday Privacy Case. The EP1 case retails for $119.99 and is available now for immediate delivery on vysk.com.
The EP1 Everyday Privacy Case is available for iPhone 5/5s and is available in gold, blue, black and red. The Vysk Private Gallery app and Vysk Private Text app are compatible with iOS version 7.0 and later.
