Your Right To Privacy
Encryption Is For Everyone
High-ranking government officials, including US President Obama, use encryption on their mobile devices. They do not leave their data vulnerable.
You have the same right to privacy. Your most important photos deserve the most secure protection. CameraSafe will encrypt and store photos on your iPhone safely.
“Encryption... is a powerful defensive weapon for free people. It offers a technical guarantee of privacy, regardless of who is running the government... It's hard to think of a more powerful, less dangerous tool for liberty.”
- Esther Dyson
