SECURE DATA CALLS
The ClinkMe application offers – as another possibility of the data communication – the functionality of free safe calls between the users of the ClinkMe application. Active connection to the 3G, Wi-Fi or LTE network is needed for calling.

Registration and login to your ClinkID account is the prerequisite for ClinkMe call, ClinkMe messaging alike.


The calls run in the secure "peer-to-peer" regime, it means that it is the network where the server is not utilized, because the clients’ devices are interconnected directly.
Our servers fulfill only the function enabling to establish available public IP addresses of both users so that the call between both devices can be made. Only if the direct connection fails to be made (e.g. due to restrictions in the corporate network), then the data are transferred through our servers. 

A detailed information about secure calls can be found here: ClinkMe Messages and Calls Security
We hope you will enjoy and utilize the new functionality!

MESSAGE ENCRYPTION
All messages and annexes to be sent from or accepted to your device are encrypted automatically by asymmetric keys from the version 1.6!!
A detailed information about secure messages can be found here: ClinkMe Messages and Calls Security

We remind of the implemented functionality in the older versions already. By purchasing the SECURE package, you will subscribe a higher degree of security by the symmetric keys.
A symmetric key will be generated for the chosen contact.



Using the QR code, you will exchange the key with your vis-à-vis, who you want to communicate securely with.



The keys can be modified additionally manually on devices of both users.



 

MESSAGE DISTRIBUTION TO OTHER DEVICES
To increase comfort when writing messages, the comprehensive functionality of the ClinkMe application has been extended by another new that will make your messages better arranged. ClinkMe now enables to distribute the messages even to other your devices where the ClinkMe application has been installed and where you are login under the same ClinkID. In the initial setting of the application the messages are delivered to all your devices where you are login to your ClinkID.





Now you can set whether or not you permit (activate) ClinkMe messaging on a certain device, both in the online and in the offline mode.

KEY DISTRIBUTION TO OTHER DEVICES
To ensure identical security for your messages on the other devices used by you, the asymmetric and symmetric keys are distributed even to other your devices. Asymmetric keys are used for encryption of messages and annexes, the symmetric keys serve for encryption of messages and calls. The device will notify you when newer keys are available on another device. Key exchange runs in both directions and the rule that the older keys are rewritten by the newer ones is applicable here. 


SETTING OF NOTIFICATION OF INCOMING MESSAGES
With implementation of encrypted messages text of your message is no more displayed (for the reason of security) in the notification of the incoming message. In setting of device details you will also decide whether or not you want to have the information about the message sender displayed in the notification.

TIME RESTRICTED MESSAGES
In the ClinkMe SECURE package you already have several versions of how to utilize the function of the time restricted messages in the application. As we have improved this functionality, we have decided to recall it to you.
After expiry of the preset time – after the message is read by the recipient – the message will be deleted both on your device and on the recipient’s device.

OPTIMIZATION OF THE PROCESS OF REGISTRATION
For those of you who will be registered into the application, the process of registration to the ClinkID, necessary for the data communication - i.e. free messaging and calling – has been simplified materially.
