1Password has a unique way of raising the security levels – by locking all of your passwords under one big password. This is a particularly neat app for people who cannot remember all the passwords for the websites that they use and for people who generally have a lot of passwords.

Furthermore, the app also works as a password generator. This means that it can come with really great passwords for you and store then under the AES 256-bit encryption. It is completely free for download and you can


Keeply takes it all to a new level. Unlike 1Password which stores only your passwords, Keeply stores all the confidential data. Whether you have to deal with numbers, pins, credit cards or just simply private notes, Keeply will make it all safe and locked under a password.

A virtual private network provides maximum encryption and an additional layer of security to your internet connection. Currently, VPN Services are used by tens of millions of people worldwide in order to protect their data and increase the levels of anonymity.

Mailbox Zeo

This is a rather unique mailbox that is very important when it comes to the security of your mailbox. Its primary function is not security, though. In fact, its primary function is to sort the emails that you receive by relevance and other parameters.

The thing that makes it the ultimate mail security app is the fact that it does not use distant servers to store your password and your information – it all stays on your phone and once you delete it, it is deleted forever.


Tor browser is the best encrypted browser that ensures all your whereabouts on the internet remain encrypted. The iTorChat is a chat app that you can use in order to protect your messages. The encryption levels with this app are very high and combined with a VPN you can have protection like the big companies such as Apple or Microsoft.


Signal is another chat app that uses end2end encryption for chatting. What makes it different from other chatting apps with this kind of encryption is the fact that you are able to verify who is on the other end of the chat anytime and they cannot remain anonymous. Furthermore, it has an algorithm for checking integrity of the chatting channels that are being used.

Another difference from iTorChat is the price – Signal is completely free while you have to pay 1.49 pounds in order to be able to use iTorChat.


Yet another email security app is called Mynigma. It also uses end2end encryption for your emails and the encryption itself does not require cloud servers in other to work. This means that, just like Mailbox Zeo, the information sent and received will be seen only by you on your phone and it will disappear completely once you decide to delete it.
