Uppidy, an app that allows users to save, search, and share their SMS to the cloud, announced today that they’ve been acquired by Gryphn–now, ArmorText–an application for safe messaging for smartphones. The terms and details of the announcements were not disclosed.
ArmorText technology allows the encrypting of videos, messages and pictures on the device so recipients are not allowed to download the information sent from their phone (think Snapchat for text). So you can share personal information, like a password, without worrying if the recipient will store the information.
“ArmorText provides secure messaging. Now users have the ability to backup and collect relevant conversations in a secure platform,” explains Navroop Mitter, CEO of ArmorText.
According to Mitter, talks of acquisitions started in January this year, but the relationship between both companies have been strong for about two years.
ArmorText removed the iOS and Android applications from online stores with plans to re-launch at the end of this month.
