Only users’ devices possess keys needed to decrypt their messages, voice, or video streams. By design, Forsta has no way of accessing or sharing these keys.
Forsta serves as a router by transporting encrypted messages between users. Once all recipients have received a message, Forsta destroys it from the server. Forever.
Forsta provides absolutely no access to its platform to third-party entities, including advertisers.
Forsta extends the Signal protocol – the same protocol used by WhatsApp and Signal – to encrypt data end to end.
The Signal protocol double ratchets a new public key for each message. Decrypting one message provides no advantage toward decrypting previous or future messages.
Only intended recipients possess a private key needed to decrypt a message. Forsta, nation states, administrators, and bad guys do not.
