Criptext Encrypted Private Email Platform was Conceptualized Inside a Colombian Prison
New Email Platform Criptext Launches Inside Colombian Prison
Criptext, a securely developed system to send emails was developed deep inside a prison. The prison located in the heart of Colombia, is now using a beta version of the email market service for inmates. Based on an open-sourced protocol library to give safe emailing, data transferred in the network is designed to operate between two people only. Prisoners in the country have never had such security while sending emails to loved ones until Criptext was unveiled.
Operating on an end-to-end system, the signal protocol gives authentic communication between two people within the community. Users on the platform actively contribute to new tech advancements inside the system to further improve its transparency.
The company isn’t using any database to store information on customers, instead of using its servers to give the sender and receiver total control of their data on their devices. The less information the company keeps on the record about the users, the better the privacy capabilities they can provide them.
Through its operations Criptext gives users the ability to delete sent emails, removing them on both ends of the platform. There are also real-time tracking capabilities for emails posted on the system, also telling users whether anyone has read the sent messages or not. Basic principles of the system are to give control back the users, especially when data which is confidential is at stake. Compromised data in a prison setting is a dangerous thing, and Criptext is seeking to help people remain secure in an already uncertain environment.
Companies who are responsible for big data like banks or even federal institutions are notorious for tracking and monitoring inmates. They continuously follow data, while impeaching on the privacy of the users. The lack of security is an encroachment on the freedom of speech, which is the only thing keeping our government institutions in line. The key to safety is new technology put in place by companies with the individual’s best interest in mind. Conversations have moved to a digital format, making the need for a protective system essential. Criptext is designed to protect people’s privacy, chats and emails from every angle, so they can securely communicate with crucial parties when the time comes.
Victims of the government often have no rights to privacy, Criptext is aiming to end that. With the new digital space, there is a good chance that emails exchanges will finally be secure once and for all. The company is continually developing new strategies to help users remain safe, while protecting their freedom of speech – even while locked up in prison – which is the humane thing to do.
