This app makes way too many assumptions to be useful. Maybe it helps somebody but following some advice here without explicitly knowing those assumptions will get people hurt. Security still isn't easy.
Security made easy?? Surely that is a joke! If you have an hour or so to spare every time you want to sort out your security and you don't have a life.. This heap of crap is for you
So much information that is useful for aid workers and just good to know in general. I love it, thanks!
Got no clue how to use it
Not sure about the couple negative reviews, but I will say that some of the applications they are advocating the NSA have admitted are a 'problem' for them in regards to the usage of them. ie; truecrypt(v 7.1a) But also in my opinion, and as the developers have stated, this was developed towards a specific group/work in mind and should be used as a guide to work from. Not a Manuel for complete security practices.
So far so good!
An app with these intentions and excellent implementation is a welcome sight in today's world where our data's security is sold to the highest bidder or taken from dark organisations. I'm delighted to see it and hope it stays honest and true to it's goal over time.
THE go-to app for both professionals and beginners travelling into areas of instability/insecurity. The checklist at the end of each section consolidates the beginner's new knowledge and reaffirms the pro's procedures, as complacency has no place in the security environment. Constantly fed with industry best practice and real-time vital information for those in-situ.
Have it if your security personal and social is conpromised or you wish to reduce the risk. 5 out of 5!
A great app that lets good people around the world do what they do better. Get it!
Extremely useful resource for those who need tips on securing their communications and person.
