Based on the videos that John McAfee has released in the past year or so, he certainly does come off as rather eccentric, but eccentricity aside, McAfee has recently announced that his company, Future Tense Systems, has managed to develop an app with Etransfr called CHADDER.
This is an app that McAfee talked about last year in which he promised to create a secure messaging app that would be able to counter the NSA’s spying by making it extremely secure. Basically it encrypts the messages sent and received and only when it arrives on the phone that it can be read.
What this means is that in the process of a message being sent, whoever intercepts it should not be able to read it. According to McAfee, “CHADDER is an unprecedented messaging platform. We have developed this highly secure system with an extraordinary team of developers at the prestigious RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology).”
In fact McAfee goes as far as saying that the app is so secure that the developers themselves won’t be able to read your messages. “CHADDER is a fun and easy to use messaging APP that happens to keep your communications private. So private that we can’t see it ourselves.”
Now we’re not sure if we need another messaging app but if you’re interested in checking it out, the app is available on Android (via Google Play) and Windows Phone. An iOS version is also on its way.
