SWISS SECURIUM® is a modern, secure messenger with a function of audio and video calls. You can create multi-user chats in our messenger and transfer files through a safe cloud CloudSecurium™. You can also connect several of your SWISS SECURIUM® accounts to one application at a time. And you can invite external users through the app to take part in a secure chat.
SWISS SECURIUM® was originally designed as a platform for secure data exchange, so the interaction between all its services and applications passes over secure SSL/TLS protocols.
All data and user application files are stored in an encrypted form, both on users' devices and on servers. Decryption of the data is impossible without the participation of the user who owns the keys.
SWISS SECURIUM® also uses the OTR protocol the interlocutor verification and establishing end-to-end encryption of conversation. Voice and video calls are protected by WebRTC technology.
Our servers, on which the platform information is stored, are located in a highly protected data centre, that provides maximum physical protection of the data.
Yes, you can. You don’t need SIM card to use SWISS SECURIUM®, but you must have an account in the corporate instance.

If you enable end-to-end encryption for your chat, it will be completely impossible because all your messages will be encrypted with temporary AES keys per message and won't be stored on our servers. Otherwise, your messages are stored encrypted both on our servers and your device. But thanks to the encryption, we have no access to your data.

SWISS SECURIUM® provides strong protection of your data on your device with encryption (and Security code or Fingerprint are used for encryption key generation). If a hacker gets your device, encryption will make it impossible to access the SWISS SECURIUM® messenger data.
