How to Make Messaging Anonymous and Secure With Blockchain?

Data protection is becoming the number one priority for the users of electronic devices, and they have to choose the right messenger for anonymous and secure communication
01 February 2018   766

With the rapidly developing technologies in the modern world the risk of jeopardizing one's privacy is growing. The web is quite an unsafe place to be and there is an outstandingly high number of cases when the digital privacy of people is being compromised. When it comes to messaging applications, the users are mostly required to verify their identity, providing huge amounts of personal data, including phone numbers, addresses, photos, which makes them vulnerable to the attacks which are aimed at stealing private information.

This data is stored on servers that can be hacked despite all security measures. And users do not know how their personal data will be used by criminals after being stolen.

From the table below you can learn which data messengers collect about users.

Even if your data is not stolen, a lot of messengers can be used for creating a clone of your account, copying photos, naming other things with your name and sending out fraudulent messages that would damage your or your friends' image.

There is an opinion that complete anonymity is required only for criminal purposes. This is far from the case. As the expert Dmitriy Soloduhin from ADAMANT project states, journalists, businessmen, people who care about their safety, people who may have some problems with the government for multiple reasons, are the target audience of anonymous messengers. One of the main problems is that people, who work in governmental organizations are just ordinary people, with their own fears, desires, and vices, and they can easily take advantage of their special status which might eventually harm others. It means that anonymity is not a criminal tool, but an instrument for protecting oneself from criminal encroachments.

Those people are not going to use ordinary messengers as they do not trust big corporations to collect, store and sell their data, and they do not trust the state which is obliged to give out information about users, and to track their messages.

It would seem that large companies could provide the users with anonymity seeing their concerns. But the business model of the large companies is mainly based on advertising, its delivery to users with a certain age, gender, place of residence, interests. And this information is collected due to the absence of anonymity.

There were a lot of attempts to create anonymous instant messengers, for instance, Bitmessage can be an example of success. But its technology had some problems with scalability. The concept was that the message could be sent to all participants of the system, but it could be decrypted only on the computer of the desired recipient, while all other computers would try to decrypt it unsuccessfully. So if millions of messages were transmitted in the system, your computer would be just wasting resources trying to decrypt messages that were sent not to you.

The problem of anonymity can be solved with the help of blockchain technology. There is no doubt in the availability of cryptocurrency for transferring information about transactions. Moreover, blockchain can be used for sending messages as well.

One of the blockchain projects which stand out of the crowd is ADAMANT. The ADAMANT project is made to respond to the question of trust in private data transfer security, since it is based on a proven to be robust Blockchain conception, and its program code is open and public.

As the developers of the project state, ADAMANT has such distinctive security and anonymity features as:

  • All messages are directly stored in the blockchain
  • The is no access to the user’s address book
  • The is no access to the user’s location information
  • No user identifications - a complete anonymity of use
  • All messages are fully encrypted on the sender’s device and then decrypted on the recipient side
  • The client app does never transfer a user’s Private Key or mnemonic phrase over the network
  • No user Private Data is being transferred
  • The message history is never stored on a device and is directly loaded from the blockchain
  • It is impossible to obtain the user’s IP-address
  • The program code for ADAMANT Messenger and blockchain are openly sourced
  • ADAMANT accounts can not be closed, blocked or limited by anyone, including the developers

From this table you can learn how exactly ADAMANT Messenger is different from all other similar projects.
