Wiki article about PGP
Your messages are stored secure and PGP encrypted on our server.
No, we do not save any logs on our server. Every message is deleted when it was delivered to your device.
We use 2048 Bit PGP RSA key size
We only save the username, the encrypted token and the Public-key generated by your device for the current login.
BetterApp has a very efficient login- and user-system.
We don´t want to save any user data, so after you register an account with your desired name, our Server automatically creates a random 9 digit number (like an ICQ-Number) which is unique for your account. Now you only need this number and your username to log in again with all your saved friends.
The PGP-Algorithm creates a 2048 Bit RSA key pair containing a Private- and a Public-Key. The Public-Key is used to encrypt messages sent to you on the sender´s device. The Public-Key now can´t decrypt this encrypted message anymore, only the Private-Key saved on your device can decrypt it now.
Only you can decrypt the messages with the Private-Key hold by the device you are curretnly logged in with.
We recomment Chrome, Firefox and Vivaldi.
The token is unique for your account and is used to log in again on another device with all your friends.
