Where is your private key located? If it is not in your possession - and only your possession - then you are not communicating privately. Well, you may be, sort of, until the actual holder of the private key unlocks your messages.

Do we really believe the slick marketing line that ‘all messages are private and not even this organisation can decrypt them’ ? How do they (can they) store files on their systems that they do not have any access to? Double/triple encrypted? With which additional keys?

I don’t buy the hype. Isn’t encryption meant to be a zero-trust game?

I have many questions.
