pEp looks to reclaim users digital privacy
pEp, which stands for pretty Easy privacy, recently launched an Indiegogo campaign with the hopes of setting a new Internet standard for digital communication.

“We designed pEp with the user in mind, as the solution that seamlessly integrates with the habits of the user, avoids central infrastructure and is available for many platforms, mail clients, and communication channels,” the pEp team wrote on its Indiegogo page.

pEp offers peer-to-peer communication with end-to-end encryption, transforms digital messages from unencrypted and unprotected to anonymous and encrypted, and provides zero-touch, secure and private communication on users’ servers on any host communication platform. Indiegogo funds will be used to speed up the delivery of more solutions based on the pEp engine.
