Ciphr Lite deploys end-to-end encryption to ensure only the intended recipients can read messages and join calls. Ciphr's platform is built using the most secure multi-layered encryption and security-first features to provide the best protection possible, including ensuring Ciphr does not store or have access to encrypted communication data. Ciphr does not require a phone number or email for registration and employs user-controlled keys. These private encryption keys are generated and stored locally on the device hosting the Ciphr app, which safeguards against backdoor access to a server and data. The platform also employs perfect forward secrecy, securing each message and call with a unique encryption key for a deeper protection level in every conversation.

Ciphr Lite's features include:

  • Anonymous Ciphr ID – Ciphr accounts never require an email or phone number to register, and Ciphr IDs (used to add a contact) are randomly generated for extra privacy.
  • Password protection – The Ciphr Lite app is password locked even when your device is unlocked for enhanced privacy and security for your communications.
  • Encrypted voice calls – Make encrypted voice calls up to five minutes long. Ciphr Lite voice calls are peer-to-peer, meaning servers never have access to your call data.
  • Encrypted voice notes – Send encrypted voice notes up to 15 seconds in length to bring conversations to life.
  • Self-destructing messages – Messages self-destruct after a pre-set period for added privacy and to ensure data is not stored longer than necessary on your device.
  • Redact sent messages – Stay in control of messages even after they've been sent with the ability to delete previously sent messages.
  • Post-Quantum protection – Ciphr Lite uses Post-Quantum encryption to further secure Elliptic Curve key exchanges. This cutting-edge technology provides an extra layer of security beyond any modern standards.

Ciphr Lite is available for Android in the Google Play store and is coming soon for iOS. A full list of countries where Ciphr Lite will be available can be found here. Ciphr Lite is supported in English, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese.
