A tunnel is an online place for a private conversation between two people. We call it a "tunnel" because it is a direct connection between the two confidants. It is incredibly secure against hackers and other eavesdroppers. And it helps you maintain your privacy in your conversations.
If both happen to be in the app ("in the tunnel") simultaneously, they exchange messages immediately, as online "chat." But go ahead and write or read messages any time. Messages are preserved in an ongoing conversation.
How is this different from other sites?
-Tunnel X knows nothing about you. Not your name, email address, or phone.
-You have no address. Addresses lead to misaddressed messages and spam. On Tunnel X, you and your confidant create a private conversation. It is an online room with two keys.
-Your key – a hyper-secure password – is a 256-bit random code that nobody ever sees. It stays on your device. On top of that, there is a six-digit PIN, which you must enter every time you open the app, for your security.
-Your conversation is encrypted, not scanned to target ads. Your key, which you keep (Tunnel X does not) is used to encrypt your messages. Only you and your confidant can decrypt them. Tunnel X super enciphers with AES, TwoFish, and Serpent, all industry standards. Tunnel X cannot read your messages, and nor can anyone else.
-Not just secure – private. Encrypted email services can be useful, but they are just email with encryption. If you read private messages in a general email program, the problem is that we tend to leave our email programs open on our screens all day. And don’t worry about your friend playing with your phone
-Separation from your regular mail. Who wants to read thoughtful messages from friends or family or important colleagues wedged between spam and dull email chit-chat?
For now, Tunnel X is free. Because we do not sell advertising, and we know absolutely nothing about our users, we cannot target them for anything.
We want Tunnel X to be the most comfortable, secure place to have a conversation online.
