Myntex offers ChatMail on Renati for free to journalists and funds for organizations.

When we saw the raw deal journalists are getting with the new anti-privacy proposed laws in Europe, that allow spying and interception on phones, we just had to do something about it.”

— Myntex President and CEO Geoff Green

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, September 12, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The UK’s Online Safety Bill, which effectively creates a backdoor to encryption, and proposed regulations elsewhere underscore the urgency to protect the privacy of investigative journalists, their teams, and sources.

Myntex Inc., an industry-leading secure mobile solutions developer, wants to help. To this end, Myntex® created a program for journalists with 200 free licenses to use its trusted end-to-end encrypted phone suite, ChatMail, on the resilient new revolutionary mobile OS, Renati. Teams of 2–10 contacts can apply. Qualifying cohorts worldwide will experience mobile communication confidentiality and security, free of charge, for 3-months.

Surveillance, spyware, phishing, and malware targeting journalists jeopardize their safety. The device hardening features of ChatMail paired with the fully locked-down ecosystem of Renati mitigate these threat vectors and stop location reporting. ChatMail on Renati is certified against physical extraction.

A fundraising component is included in the program. A donation of $100 CAD per activated license will be given to the applicant’s choice of Amnesty International; Citizen Lab; Forbidden Stories; International Center for Journalists; or Reporters Without Borders. An advocate for strong encryption and the right to privacy, Myntex stands aligned with non-governmental organizations committed to digital privacy and security. These five NGOs were selected to support their projects that help to protect journalists.

Geoff Green, Myntex CEO and Chief Systems Architect empathizes with these vulnerable investigative teams. “When we saw the raw deal journalists are getting with the new anti-privacy proposed laws in Europe, that allow spying and interception on phones, we just had to do something about it. Security is critical for journalists and their sources.” Green emphasized, “ChatMail on Renati provides security-first protection and privacy. It even blocks Pegasus and similar exploits.”

To qualify, applicants must provide a link showcasing their body of work as investigative journalists. Also required is a compatible OEM unlocked Pixel phone, a computer, and a secure internet connection.

By following Myntex or ChatMail on social media and providing their relevant account link, the company will be able to authenticate applicants. A welcome email will be sent to journalists who are accepted into the program, providing a unique link to the web installer for Renati OS and instructions to simplify the setup of the device and deployment of ChatMail®.

The journalist program is open through December 2023 or until capacity is reached. Apply now.
