Check out the videos on the How To page. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us.
If I encrypt with an iPhone version of the app, can my friends decrypt with the same key on their Android devices?
Yes, all versions of Secret Message use the same 128-bit AES encryption algorithm on all the platforms (except where specified otherwise).
What is Stealth Mode?
While in Stealth Mode (currently available on Android version) the app is not visible in the app list (aka "drawer").
There is no open button; The only way to launch Secret Message is to dial "3666" and press the call button.
Stealth Mode option can be enabled/disabled as you see fit.
What are Salt and Iteration options?
These are relevant only for 256-bit encryption. If you're not familiar with these cryptography terms, this may
be a good starting point: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_(cryptography)
Are 128 and 256-bit encryption modes compatible?
No, if you encrypt something with 256-bit option (available in Pro versions) enabled, no one will be able to decrypt
using 128-bit version (or vice versa). Also, make sure same salt and iteration count are used between both
people using 256-bit encryption.
