With the smartphone industry growing larger every day, there is a increasing concern for the security of data on said mobile devices. The power of these devices is always increasing, as is the number of instant messaging software that can be installed on them. With the advent of these different types of messaging software, the need for security is a must.
InnerGroup, a New York based social messaging platform was created to combat this disparity and to alleviate the concern for hack attacks, security breaches, or data losses. Santo Porpiglia, InnerGroup’s founder, believes that communication and privacy should be held in conjunction, and should not be accessible to third parties.
It is not surprising to see popular texting platforms such as Facebook messenger and Whatsapp falter in the security aspect, whereas messaging apps like InnerGroup rise in popularity. For most people nowadays, their whole life is on their smartphone. It includes a plethora of personal information and data. With all this information on our smartphones, it makes it a goldmine for potential thieves. The risk of your messages being stolen has never been higher. In the words of Santo Porpiglia, “Texting should give you a sense of anonymity, not worry.”
Part of InnerGroup’s appeal can be attributed to their heavy focus on encryption technologies. InnerGroup has taken the initiative to protect your data because they believe that your content is yours, and no one else’s. Additionally, the app consists of no ads whatsoever and no data is ever stored on their server. InnerGroup offers countless features including groups where members must request access to join. Anyone can create a group and send secure, encrypted text messages, videos, or photos without having to worry about data loss. You can also determine how long your content will reside on other people’s devices.
