Were You Just Hacked

personalprivacyplatformEquifax Hack may affect 143 Million Americans

Equifax, one of the leading credit reporting companies, said that hackers may have gained access to the personal information of 143 million Americans, including social security numbers and driver’s license numbers.  Equifax is the epitome of Big Data, collecting every bit of data about us, and then trafficking in that data for huge profits.

To Check if you were affected, go to www.equifaxsecurity2017.com and click on the Check Potential Impact tab. You must submit your last name and last six digits of your Social Security number there.

The Problem is widespread

The problem with the current state of Cyber-Security is that they only focus on keeping intruders out, and when that fails our personal privacy and financial security is compromised. With the data that was hacked, thieves can now open up credit card accounts, take out loans and even gain access to our bank accounts. The current system is designed for Big Data to quickly and easily profit from our personal information, and often that is at the expense of our personal privacy and security.

New Laws

The Equifax hack has already generated a tremendous outcry from both Washington and State lawmakers to put in place new laws and rules that require Big Data to better protect our information. The personal privacy protection that DatChat has been focused on is now coming to center stage.

DatChat has the Solution & Perfect Timing

The Personal Privacy Platform and the core technology that DatChat has developed is focused on fixing two major security flaws in the current system:

  • Protecting & Controlling our information after we hit send or submit.
  • Making our information useless to an intruder should they get it

The file storage and financial transaction components of our personal privacy platform are the ideal solution for Big Data to protect our critical personal and financial information.  Additionally, the new laws that will most probably result because of the Equifax hack will make our platform essential.

Hillary was Hacked, but you can Protect Yourself

The news is full of stories of hacking, deleted emails and how to recover those long lost messages. While most of us never have to worry about the a foreign government, or any government wanting to see to our messages. We should all take simple measures to protect our privacy.  A simple slip of the “Send” button can cause a lot of embarrassment.  The last year and a half I have been working on a new type of messaging platform that would of save a lot of headaches for many politicians lately.

Biggest threat to our Privacy:  While the media focuses on the potential for the government to invade our privacy, the real threat comes from what happens to our messages in our recipient’s hands.  Personal and business relationships are constantly evolving and situations arise where you need to revoke the rights to information you have shared.  DatChat eliminates sender regret, and can protects your privacy when you need it the most.

Complete Message Control:  Patent pending technology allows a sender to set a message to last forever, or automatically self-destruct after a certain number of views.  At any time a sender can wipe texts off a recipient’s phone or give the recipient more time to view the message.

“Nuke” a Conversation:  Users can even opt to Nuke messages, which erases both sides of the conversation on both the sender and recipient’s devices.

Encryption: All DatChat messages are encrypted with AES256 for the message, and RSA for the key to ensure your messages are only seen by you and your intended recipients.  Each message is individually encrypted for the recipient and cannot be forwarded or saved.  Additionally, all messages are sent and received via a SSL connection and can never be viewed by DatChat under any circumstance.

Screenshot Protection: DatChat’s Patent Pending   protection mode makes it nearly impossible to screenshot a secret picture or message.  Also, the sender receives notifications when someone attempts to screenshot protected or regular self-destructing messages.

You can download DatChat for Free on the iTunes app Store

The best part of DatChat is that you are always in control.  Who knows before hand if they are going to have sender regret.

Stay Safe

Biggest Threat To Our Privacy

The media focuses on the potential for the government to invade our messaging privacy. It’s probably more realistic for the vast majority of us to be more worried about what might happen to our messages in the hands of our friends, associates and relatives.   There are a ton of websites devoted to funny and embarrassing texts, drunk texts, break-up texts or really inappropriate ones that you wish you could get back.  Personally, I know I hope I never see one of my messages on one of those sites.    Personal and business relationships are constantly evolving, and now with DatChat you have the power to have conversations that last forever, and then make them disappear whenever you want…YOU ARE IN TOTAL CONTROL.

DatChat Messenger with total privacy control for both individual and group messages is the first   messenger that always gives you the option to erase or change how long your messages last on the other person’s phone.   It doesn’t matter if you set your messages to last forever or automatically self-destruct, because at any time each sender can wipe them off the recipient’s phone or give them more time.   Senders can choose to change the rights to a single message or destruct all of their messages at the same time.

Messaging Rights Management Platform:  Patent pending technology allows senders to set a message to last forever, or automatically self-destruct after a certain number of views.  At any time a sender can wipe texts off a recipient’s phone or give the recipient more time to view the message.

“Nuke” a Conversation:  Users can even opt to Nuke messages, which erases both sides of the conversation on both the sender and recipient’s devices.

Encryption: All DatChat messages are encrypted with AES256 for the message and RSA for the key to ensure your messages are only seen by you and your intended recipients.  Each message is individually encrypted for the recipient and cannot be forwarded or saved.  Additionally, all messages are sent and received via a SSL connection and can never be viewed by DatChat under any circumstance.

Screenshot Protection: DatChat’s Patent Pending   protection mode makes it nearly impossible to screenshot a secret picture or message.  Also, the sender receives notifications when someone attempts to screenshot protected or regular self-destructing messages.

New Brunswick, NJ (April 14, 2016) – DatChat Inc. today announced the availability of DatChat Messenger, offering an unprecedented level of privacy control for both individual and group messages.  DatChat Messenger is the first privacy messaging app that provides the option to dictate how long sent messages are accessible on the recipient’s phone.  It is also the first to offer a “Nuke” option, which will erase both sides of a conversation on both the sender and recipient’s devices.

 

DatChat Messenger gives senders a new level of privacy and control through its customizable messaging settings.  Senders can set a message to last forever, or automatically self-destruct after a certain number of views.  At any time a sender can wipe texts off a recipient’s phone or give the recipient more time to view the message.  Senders can choose to change the rights to a single message or destruct all of their messages at once.  Additional features include the ability to remain anonymous, prevent screenshots and hide pictures behind preview images on the camera roll and in the messaging stream.

 

“Whether online dating or texting a colleague, we’ve all had those moments when we’ve regretted sending a message or we simply want to make sure it isn’t seen by the wrong person,” said Darin Myman, co-founder and CEO of DatChat Inc. “In addition to DatChat’s unique privacy features, users don’t have to deal with the annoyance of having a conversation one disappearing message at a time.  DatChat offers a traditional messaging experience without giving up control of shared messages and pictures.”

 

DatChat Messenger includes the following features:

 

  • Self-Destructing Messages: The sender decides how many times pictures or messages can be viewed before they self-destruct. Also, the sender can dictate how many views are left or erase the content at any time.  Users can even opt to Nuke messages, which erases both sides of the conversation on both the sender and recipient’s devices.

 

  • Hide in Plain Sight: Senders can hide pictures and information on the camera roll, hidden and encrypted behind other pictures. Only the cover photo can be seen in plain sight.

 

  • Screenshot Protection: DatChat features a protection mode which makes it nearly impossible to screenshot a secret message. Also, the sender receives notifications when someone attempts to screenshot protected or regular self-destructing messages.

  • Message Security: Only the sender and intended recipients can view messages — they cannot be forwarded to anyone else. While on the DatChat servers, they cannot be viewed by anyone because only the sender has the key.

 

  • Multiple Accounts:  Senders can have multiple accounts with friends, messages and secret pictures only visible when logged in to that respective account.

 

  • Anonymity: No phone number, email or personal information required.  All users need is a screen name to send a message.
