P2P Encrypted Messaging App
transfers encrypted text and data between web browsers over webRTC
data channels. Messages are encrypted in transit using TLS/https and then encrypted again for storage on the user's device.
Since webRTC connect browsers together in temporary private networks, there is no webserver in the middle and therefore no way the messages can be read by any third party. Of course, for this to work, the web browsers must be connected and the data channels established.
As a fall-back, then, for use it times when the browsers are not connected over webRTC, Coms
sends messages encrypted by TLS/https to the web server, where they are encrypted again and stored, waiting for the recipient to collect them.
If the recipient is on Coms
at that time, the messages are on the web server for less than 3 seconds.
Messages are deleted from the web server
as soon as the recipient reads them, leaving no trace, and encrypted again for storage on the user's device.
This makes Coms Messenger
the most secure encrypted messaging app imaginable! Your privacy is protected and guaranteed by the nature of the technology. No-one scans, analyses or shares your messages, nothing is stored in a cookie, and big-data gets zero!
!!! Be sure to protect your PC, phone or tablet with a good strong password. It's also best to log out of Coms
when you're done, but it's more convenient to just close it - if you start it again within 24 hours you'll still be logged in and Coms
will open the messenger interface automatically.
