WISeID.com to Encrypt Your Facebook, Twitter and G+ Wall Postings, Bringing Encrypted Messaging to Everyday Communication

February 18, 2013

GENEVA, February 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

WISeID Social app and its website WISeID.com are allowing users to encrypt their
Facebook wall since 2010 and was the first app providing this service. Now WISeID Social
can also encrypt G+ wall postings, SMS and Tweets, allowing privacy over any communication
service, even open social networks. The transmitted text and wall posting cannot be
decrypted without an “access key”. You set the key and share the access key with your
friends by a different channel so they use it to decrypt their walls.

Participation on the web and in social networks puts us all at risk of personal data
theft. Hackers have infiltrated scores of networks by gathering innocuous details about
all of us that flows freely on the web, and using that information deceptively. Encrypting
personal messages is one means to help protect our details from eavesdropping, phishing,
and other deceptions. Encrypting private correspondence on social networks can also
protect your personal information from being involuntarily used for advertising. With
WISeID the information is converted from its recognizable format into a code that cannot
be read without applying a complex algorithm to decrypt it.

WISeID Social encryption is part of the Right to Disappear Online international
campaign launched by WISeKey and The International Organization for Secure Electronic
Transactions OISTE.ORG with the objective to return the control of personal data to the
users.

WISeKey.com is the pioneer of Digital Identity for people, objects and content and
eSecurity solutions. The company is recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Global
Growth Company Partner. The privately held company is headquartered in Geneva and serves
customers in more than 140 countries.
