Gliph App Empowers People to Take Back Control of Their Personal Privacy(March 08, 2012)
Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
Consumers finally have control over their digital identity, thanks to Glipha secure messaging, identity and contact management platform. Gliph launched today with free apps on the iTunes App Store and Android Marketplace.
Gliph has answered the ongoing digital privacy debate with a reliable messaging platform that is truly private, allowing users to choose exactly what personal information they share and with whom they share it. Through simple native interfaces, Gliph allows users to select their own unique gliph pseudonym (a combination of three to five visual icons, such as a star, mushroom, and diamond). When Gliph users make connections with one another, they can reveal how much information they want to share on a person-by-person basis. Once connected through Gliph, users can use in-app text messaging.
We believe people are multi-faceted and should be allowed to reflect a unique identity that matches each relationship, whether it be professional or social, said Rob Banagale co-founder, and CEO. Gliph lets people reveal only whats appropriate and earn trust over timejust like we all do in off-line relationships.
Gliph is the first company to offer cross-platform applications that deliver encrypted text messaging and personal information exchange. It uses security measures to ensure the users conversations and personal data are signed and encrypted, in transit and prior to being stored on the server. We secure your first name better than most websites secure your credit card information, Banagale explains.
Officially launching at South by Southwest (SXSW), Gliph will offer free mobile device charging from 12 p.m. to 1 a.m. CST each day from their cart at the southwest corner of 4th Street & N. Congress Avenue. Gliphs Yeti mascot will make appearances downtown Austin throughout the conference.
