Just the other day I signed up for Unseen.is then came across what is shown below so now I don’t use it.
It would appear that Unseen may be a rouse and that nothing on the net is truly safe.
On the jimstonefreelance.com front page this morning (EST) Jim wrote that his firstname.lastname@example.org email account had been closed down shortly after opening it.
I can confirm 100% that what Jim said about unseen.is is true, because I set up an email acct there too, communicated with jim, got 1 response from him and now my email account there has been shut down too.
I was working on a report about a very sensitive subject that would be published on my own site and Jim’s simultaneously. Two days ago, while researching and writing it, my laptop quit. Both the motherboard and hard drive quit at the same time. I’ve had one or the other go on other computers, but never both at the same time. Then after I got access to another computer, I set up the unseen email to use to talk to Jim about rewriting the report and now our accounts there at unseen were both shut down.
That site is NOT safe. It is a TRAP to give people a false sense of security so they reveal things they would be too paranoid to otherwise.

In spite of what some people say, encryption really does work, it really can protect you. Governments, banks and professional spies rely on encryption. If it didn’t work, would they use it?
Encryption uses a series of digits (the “key”) with special formulas to scramble your message so only your recipient can unscramble it. That “key” is very difficult to guess when you use strong encryption, there are so many possibilities. Many other services that offer encryption keep the key, but getting a copy of the key from the service is the easiet way to break in to your messages. With Unseen, you keep the key, so it’s not possible for even possible for us to read any of your messages.
Keep in mind, with enough time and advanced technology, anything can be broken. You need something that can’t be broken by the particular person trying to break into the message. The high school kid next door has different capabilities than hackers looking for bank account information, or those of Big Brother. We have two different levels at Unseen; “pretty good” encryption, which is Free, and very strong encryption which is our Premium level service.
