for your Active Enjoyment
This is the ChatS Main Page / Message List display:
Here you see a list of sent and received messages.
If this is your first time on this page, the list will be empty and your first step is to create a contact to receive messages or alternatively send your first message by pressing the “Create Message” button. You can also create your Contact from the Message page.
The buttons at the bottom of the page gives the following functionality:
Contacts: Gives you a list of created contacts and the option to create new ones. To send a message you have to setup at least 1 contact first.
Contact Lists: Gives you a list of created contact lists. Contact Lists let’s you send to multiple contacts individually by just selecting the one contact list recipient.
Create Message brings you to the Message page where you can create, encrypt and send messages.
Refresh: Checks the backend for any new incoming messages from your contacts. This also happens automatically every few minutes when you have ChatS visible, and every halve hour when it is in the background. It plays the message received sound when one arrives
Manual: Brings you to this page of the ChatS manual
Settings: Brings you to a page where you can change your login name, passcode, display name, password and your preference regarding saving the password for auto-login (not recommended).
The Main Page gives you the following info:
The Number of messages you have received.
The number of messages you have successfully sent.
When you start ChatS it goes directly to the Registration Page. You need to register to be able to upload messages. The Password you enter are used for access and encryption purposes.
All messages sent are encrypted including the recipients name, the subject, the text/content of the message, even your login and passcode when delivering are handled in encrypted form. Our servers don’t decrypt any of it but just handles them in this encrypted form. Only your device and your contact’s device that has the contact pascode entered, can decrypt the data of the message.
We don’t say it’s impossible to break the code by them with big resources, but they‘ll have to break every message separately. And the more that uses ChatS the worse that is going to be.
Think of ChatS as your personal Enigma machine and whatever you enter as password and pascode as your code book. If the German’s in WWII instead of using a code book just had used sample the name of the youngest crew member, alternating by day, a name known to both the German admiralty and the submarine’s crew, the code probably wouldn’t have been broken because there would have been no code book to capture. Unless they had another piece of the puzzle, like one message in clear and the same one in code. Easy to find the unknown if there is only 1 instead of 2. That is why we don’t encrypt the obvious; like folder names or counting numbers.
This Main Page view is the revised mode displaying a list of messages, available in ChatS from version 5.0
