A Convenient Additional Level of Security for Your Confidential Messages

End to end encryption is great! But it doesn’t protect group chat messages once they’re received, where they’re most vulnerable.

Few people are sophisticated, proactive or malicious enough to tap into a messaging network in order to try to steal a peek at a user’s messages. The greatest risk to the confidentiality of messages is much more mundane and human in nature. It’s the innocent, situational, and mostly careless way that we humans care for and handle our phones, laptops and other devices. For example, most folks password protect their phone, but few log out of their various mobile apps, which means simply tapping on any app icon opens that app automatically.

Regardless of how vigilant a user is, can they be confident everyone in their shared message channels is just as careful? We all know someone whose password is “password”. How comfortable should users be, knowing how easy it can be for confidential messages to be purposely or inadvertently seen?

What’s more, with most messaging apps, once a message is posted it’s there forever. Do message senders really want a confidential message to be just one wrong-person-scroll-back away from being read on any recipient device?

Today, Wrinkl offers a group messaging innovation that protects against unwanted dissemination of confidential information. Now message senders can password protect their most sensitive messages by requiring recipients to enter a password to view them. A Password Protected Message requires a password specified by sender (e.g., TouchID, app password or custom password) in order to be viewed, and then reverts to a password-required-notice once read.

It’s no coincidence that Wrinkl’s patent pending password protected message functionality addresses privacy. This issue and others have motivated Wrinkl’s innovations since its inception. From References, to Email Integration, to Requested Private Replies, to 1:1 Sidebars, @@mentions℠, Bundles, At-a-Glance and more, Wrinkl is making group messaging useable for business.
