Not many of us think about this, but all of those posts, likes, dislikes, comments and anything else you might share with the world on almost all of the “free” social media apps come at a high cost – your privacy. Now, I have so many friends that will say, “I have nothing to hide. I’m not doing anything wrong. What do I care if they collect information about my dogs, or whatever.”
Even if you have nothing to hide, the information being collected can say something about you, your habits, what you like to do, what you don’t like to do. In short, this information and actions around that information can be used to build a profile about you. A profile on which predictive analytics can be run and used to make decisions. Inconsequential decisions would be marketing materials and offers that target your personal preferences. Other types of decisions that you may not want another entity making about you, possibly preventing you from participating in important decision-making, would be to assume you don’t want to participate in a primary election, or a census poll, or maybe prioritizing your government paperwork.
Whatever the case, it can be important to keep your messaging private, especially if it is between your family and close friends. The information you share in this space is meant for only them and should not be used by anyone else. In order to maintain privacy, you need a messaging app that keeps things safe and secure, and InnerGroup is one to consider.
Using strong encryption, each and every message sent/received is encrypted in a protective shell. This protection allows users to send text messages, files, photos, videos and audio files with peace of mind. As a primary user, you can create groups and invite members. Only invited members can send and read messages to other members in that group. If you remove a member from a group, they will not be able to see any of that group’s messages.
Data mining is a prevalent in today’s age. InnerGroup does none of that. It does not collect any information about you, your groups, your members or the messages sent. No information is saved on the Cloud or on any server. As soon as an encrypted message is decrypted and read, it belongs on the recipient device and is wiped from the server.
InnerGroup is free to download but supports strong message protection by charging users $1.99 for each group they create. To me, that is a very small price to pay for a great deal of security. If you are in the market for a secure messaging app, I would give InnerGroup a try. You have nothing to lose!
