You're hearing from a company called -- -- They have a nap they say that can encrypt your phone calls and texts so that folks cannot spy and you include Indiana say.
Joining me now the chairman of secrets.
-- -- -- Good to see Harvey thank you so much for being here so you have actually done this your sister company.
Has done this for soldiers in Afghanistan trying to avoid.
Taliban tapping into their communications and now you want to do it for regular.
Americans and folks.
Who don't want to be spied on how does that work and I just pick up my iPhone and download it.
Now that's exactly right you can get to the iTunes store the Google play store you downloaded it the app for free.
And then it's immediately working and if you -- somebody else with the -- as well.
You have a completely secure conversation for -- how -- gonna make it right.
It will be free initially for trouble and -- we -- three months afraid and then -- coming in but a friend you can -- -- -- month for free up to a year and then there's three dollars a month.
OK so only works if both parties -- the communication are using secret that's great because I'm encrypting it and -- decrypt in the conversation now how how does that work.
Well it's using two silences them the -- basically mathematically.
Scrambled to cool.
And that this -- -- search string these strong.
And that's how we are encrypting so -- the phone bill columns what would it show wouldn't show light -- on number.
Well don't get a -- I never -- -- don't.
I never get my Verizon -- -- get.
This this this is so cool about let's that they tell you -- the reason they keep the duration of your goals and he quotes because they want to -- -- though we don't have we don't keep that.
So all any queen make the minute that you in that cold the keys -- shredded and locals call it history.
What about though if I let's say I I mean I'm Odyssey -- to pay Verizon because not every calls going to be encrypted on the call people who don't have secret.
So they're gonna send me -- -- an initial phone calls -- what let's say if I have used the decrypt technology to call certain people.
Is just liking so they use do going.
All using Internet to do Google search should just connecting to a -- Who with us and -- we're in you would -- to plan.
And so we do Verizon plan you probably get a data package and we use a little bit of that they threw fuel on the -- the service.
And of course if you -- a Wi-Fi service and it's a -- Now that the -- but some of the criticism is that you know I don't really have anything.
Really to hide I don't wanna be spying on my phone conversations -- you know I don't really have any night but terrorists do so what's to stop them from doing this will using this.
Firstly I think you do have things that a product you'd like your health confirmation of thanking him for information Yahoo! -- you know of course there are many people who may download this -- and use it.
So old social purposes now seriously -- guys terrorists don't use cell -- -- -- that's the first intimate.
While NSA is certainly seems to think they -- Bohea lay -- -- saying is this is trolling a -- the mound to face you're looking for morsels of information that -- some of lead them to perhaps they knew that the -- But we will actually -- -- law enforcement.
You know in the event the somebody were informed that somebody is misusing our.
So -- but how would they know that because what they say is general Hayden the forward or visit of the CIA and NSA came out this week and some of this out works.
We -- some -- in Afghanistan.
We pick up a number that we've never seen before you knowing that we know is it terrorists we believe these terrorists -- we run that number through a database here in the US to see.
Has anybody even talking in this number and only then if they see the doctor discovered -- they take the next step of trying to get more data on your phone.
You're -- -- shield.
Those numbers from coming up right.
That's correct it will complete the -- is bad for those who want to fight terror but it will enable you could still from the Verizon network for example CB you've connected to the Secret Service.
And so they haven't they -- -- they have them activate the point the -- -- secret.
-- just -- Kennedy school at.
-- can't come after you for that because that's that's like when you are approaching the DW I checkpoint -- you doing you read before you get there.
If it's not legal for the police to pull you over just because use you refuse to subject yourself.
To that surveillance of that police interaction it would not be legal I think for the police to.
-- the law enforcement community to suspect you of anything -- just because you use this technology.
-- that absolute absolutely not and and that the technology is designed to restore privacy rights so people who intend to use -- for the proper focus.
He does a big and heavy hitters musical what a top -- from they.
To for the US Secret Service the chief technology officer who once were pre US Secret Service is mother British officials will all help you with -- -- Yes yes there are some serious people who understand that mobile is not secure.
I have to put it one of these fancy thank you know you don't would have -- -- here and and this is an iPhone four and it's in the latest arrived back and the satellites -- And essentially this.
And Naples the humanitarian woke up in the middle of Africa for example to connect fun.
You don't have a secure -- Free.
Over a satellite advances so this is that they to -- for settlement.
So that takes it to another level that -- that I got into this and I may act you can do it on the regular iPhone possibly have pulled the purity of -- conversations.
-- thank you.
