Qnective decided to remove its secure messenger app myENIGMA from the Android and Apple stores. The application does not support any of the latest OS and has not been updated recently. The service shall be completely discontinued by 1st of April 2016, giving users the chance to switch to another secure messaging app. After the 1st of April, all user metadata and encrypted data will be permanently deleted from our servers.
The reason for the discontinuation is a strategic business decision – Qnective will focus entirely on secure communication services for governments and companies in the future. myENIGMA started as a small side project, but after 450’000 downloads required more and more resources and developer time. We want to thank all of our users for their commitment and their feedback and encourage them to continue using an encrypted alternative to common messaging systems.
