New releases available

Versions 2 of all SMSCrypt variants are now available! Note that with the new demo versions, you will be able to read half of each received message. Also note that version 2 is not backwards compatible with previous versions due to major changes to the encryption algorithm and the data transmission method. This means that you have to make sure that you and your contacts all use version 2 of any of the three variants. In other words, communication between a version 2 and a version 1.1 or previous copies is not possible.

Details follow:
  • Changes
  1. The demo version allows you to read half of each received message so that you can safely evaluate the application.
  2. The encryption algorithm has changed.
  3. The data transmission method has changed.
  4. Improvement on the date format associated with messages.
  • Corrections
In some rare cases (certain combinations of plain text and password), due to some character encoding issues, the transmitted data was corrupted. Therefore, the receiver could not correctly decrypt the message. This problem was indeed rare since it remained undetected for many test case scenarios.
