Pushbullet adds end-to-end encryption for privacy


Amsterdam: Pushbullet has announced that it now supports end-to-end encryption for additional user privacy.

According to The Next web, the company announced in a blog post that the new encryption is applied across notifications that are mirrored between devices, any text captured by the universal copy-and-paste option and any SMS messages that are sent using the platform.

When it is enabled by entering a password on each device, then the data passed using Pushbullet is not visible to the service itself or the company, only encrypted data is passed along.

The users have to go to the settings menu on each device to enter a password for end-to-end encryption.

The Android, Chrome and Windows desktop apps of Pushbullet supports this feature now.

The company says that it is working to bring it to iOS and Mac as soon as possible. Opera, Safari and Firefox support will then be added later.
