John McAfee Releases Secure Anti-Surveillance Messaging App ‘Chadder’

Last year John McAfee, the founder of world renowned McAfee antivirus software had promised his followers for a new device that would defeat the NSA and protect user’s privacy.

The device is not here but a solution to surveillance has arrived in shape of a new messaging application which will keep your communications under wraps so that only the intended recipient gets to read the message.

Future Tense Systems (FTC), a McAfee software development company, in partnership with Etransfr, a New-York based start-up company, released a private messaging application CHADDER’ that allows anyone to send private encrypted messages.

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),”said John McAfee, Founder of  FTC.

The free messaging application was released at the Imagine RIT festival, Rochester held on May 3.

McAfee, the 68 year old entrepreneur said,

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.”

The information passed through the application is safe because it uses key server encryption, that is, when you send a message, it is transmitted as an encrypted text and no one can unlock the message except the person for whom it is intended.

Lexi Sprague, Founder of Etransfr, said the consumers are as much a product in the social media industry and there is a need for balance between usability and privacy. The new application was developed to safeguard privacy, which is sensitive to young and adults alike.

The application is simple and straight forward with a lot of power given to the user. At the end of the day it is about giving privacy and control back to the user without scaring them off with complicated log in and messaging processes.”

According to the official website, the Android version of CHADDER is available for download on Google Play and Windows Phone Store. Soon it will be available on iTunes as well, which is currently under testing.

FTC offers innovative mobile and web solutions with highest degree of security and privacy.

Founded by John McAfee, its renowned products include McAfee Anti-Virus, Tribal Voice, which developed one of the first instant messaging programs Pow-Wow, and DCENTRAL1.

The company is working on numerous other privacy and security solutions.

Update: CHADDER App is now available for Android OS here and for Windows phones here.
