The Year To Reclaim Your Privacy

Reclaim What Was Taken, Take Back Control Of Your Privacy.

We’ve reached that time of year again where everyone sits down, racks their brain, and tries to think of how they can improve their life in some way. Of course I’m referring to New Year’s resolutions.

We’ve all done it at least once in our lives, thought hard you came up with a brilliant plan of how “I am going to exercise more in the new year” or “I’m going to stop smoking” or the staple “I’m going to eat healthier”.

Now all of these of course are good goals to set for oneself, and I’m sure there are a few of you out there who have made such goals and have stuck to them, Bravo!

Do New Year’s resolutions change with the times?

After a quick search, going back to 2015 up to this year to see if New Year’s resolutions change with the times, this is what was discovered.

As you can see, year by year the results are very similar, there are only a few little changes for each year, this was found to be quite interesting and a bit confusing.

So after digging a little deeper it was found that there are many different categories of New Year’s resolutions such as, resolutions for personal life or business life, for family life, new years resolutions for singles, new years resolutions for pet owners, the list goes on and on.

Also found was new years resolutions for Privacy, and what steps one can take while perusing the internet to try to limit their digital footprint. Everyone is, in someway connected with social media, everybody’s life is out there in public. A good thing to keep in mind is, each post is a piece of you, and you have to remember- the people who you intend to see it are not the only audience.

Recently there has been a drive, a call to regain some form of control over one’s online presence, and once faced with the news and the facts that some companies which operate these social media sites have been taking advantage of their users by selling off their information including their contacts, what they write, who they write to, what they watch, even what they say, the call for change has increased exponentially. Though one must be reminded that this is the price one pays for using such sites and services.

The price you pay is your Privacy.

Nothing is free.

In 2018 censorship on the internet reared its ugly head. Videos, photos, articles, podcasts etc, being removed from sites due to there unpopular opinion, or what some would claim to be fake news.

However as stated above, all of these are Free services, you get what you pay for. Freedom of speech does not exist on the internet today, at least not on someone else’s website. It comes down to personal property, the owner of said website has the right to refuse any content they deem as unwanted. You are still free to create your own website, make the rules, and say whatever you want.

Or are you?

The Emperor’s New Clothes

In 2018 we also learnt that the secret messages which are sent via Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp are not so secret after all. “This messaging app describes itself as a privacy-oriented app, intended for sending encrypted personal or business secrets without storing them to memory. However, as one security researcher discovered, this could not be further from the truth.

An NSA tool called DNI Presenter, used to read the content of stored emails, also enables an analyst using XKeyscore to read the content of Facebook chats or private messages.

An analyst can monitor such Facebook chats by entering the Facebook user name and a date range into a simple search screen.

So much for Secret Messages or private chats.

The Year To Reclaim Your Privacy

However, the end of 2018 also revealed something rather remarkable. A new revolutionary technology that has the power to bring back censorship free social media. A real private secure messaging app that delivers the world’s first TRUE end to end encryption model. One of the first case uses of Blockchain Technology given to the hands of everyday people. All backed by a company that collects not one peice of personal information on their users. For they are not dependant on selling users information, they are dependant on selling the world’s first decentralized, blockchain authenticated, anonymous secure messenger.

Crypviser Secure Messenger, the first use of Crypviser GmbH, Automated Encryption (patent pending) gives people the power to reclaim what is being taken from them, their privacy. The use of Blockchain Technology has made this possible. By setting up contacts via Blockchain, the transfer of Public Keys is authenticated by the nodes on the Blockchain. Therefore the keys cannot be altered, manipulated, or exchanged for anyone else’s via man in the middle attack. The user is assured that the person they are communicating with, is truly that person, and no one else, TRUE End to End Encryption. Crypviser is the first to implement this procedure, a real life use of Blockchain Technology, put into the hands of everyone.

Crypviser Secure Messenger will also be a censorship free platform, boasting the first ever end to end encrypted channels. Unlike other hosting platforms the hosts of a Crypviser Channel will be free to impose as many or as few rules as they desire, and only those which the host grants access to, will be able to view the content of the channel.

Crypviser Secure Messenger also delivers the promise of freedom of speech. By embracing decentralization they have created an un-blockable network which can not be shut down or blocked merely by turning off a switch, or blocking access to an entry point. Running on a network of open source user run nodes, entry into the Crypviser Network is spread across the globe, creating an outlet for people to get their messages heard, whether those messages take the form of a text, a call, or even HD video.
