Protect Yourself With the ŠtítMe Privacy Protection Platform

ŠtítMe, a next generation mobile privacy platform, released in the US, allows people to connect and speak via mobile telephone, all without revealing their actual telephone numbers to each other. This one-of-a-kind product also protects its users from third-party intrusions, allowing people to connect instantaneously while maintaining control of their privacy. Registered users determine who may call them, when they may call and can even choose to ignore callers or ensure they never call back. With ŠtítMe you never have to reveal your personal mobile telephone number again.

“With today’s digitally-connected lifestyles, where much of our life takes place via our mobile handsets or online, our every movement is monitored and personal data collected. ŠtítMe lets you reclaim your privacy, enabling you to speak with family, friends and business contacts with unmatched personal identity protection and control,” stated Gurtaj S. Padda, creator of the ŠtítMe platform and founder and chief executive officer of Boolean Tech, owner of the technology. “Even world leaders aren’t safe from prying “ears”. Boolean Tech believes personal privacy is a fundamental right. We therefore created the ŠtítMe platform from the ground up with a focus on providing individuals with the peace of mind that comes from enjoying personal communication in a reliable and private manner.”

Using a proprietary, secret algorithm, ŠtítMe offers unlimited, secure private communication channels with the crystal clear voice quality of a normal cellular call. The service is a toll-quality telephony service (not Voice-Over-Internet-Protocol (VOIP)) and its technology allows it to be mobile handset, as well as telecommunications carrier, agnostic.

Boolean Tech built the ŠtítMe platform around the core fundamental principle of privacy. This right is not only for those who can afford and understand technology, but for all.

A simple online registration process brings users one step closer to total privacy protection. The next time an outgoing call is made the recipient will view a unique ŠtítMe-protected phone number instead of the caller’s personal mobile telephone number. This next-generation privacy platform automatically assigns a unique ŠtítMe-number to every contact in the user’s contact list. This unique, privacy-protected number works only between the caller and the recipient, and is the only way for the caller to be contacted by the other party. The same applies if another ŠtítMe user were to call the user; the number he uses would have been allocated specifically for him to call you and no one else. Each set of two ŠtítMe users - caller and recipient - can only get in touch with each other through their unique ŠtítMe-protected numbers. That means no third-party can contact the user, even if they obtain his unique ŠtítMe number. This ensures privacy is never compromised and actual mobile phone numbers are never revealed. The numbers allocated are for life of the subscription.

ŠtítMe platform technology is the only one of its kind in the world, which is linearly scalable to the extent that it can extend to connect every American to every American on a one-on-one relationship basis. It fundamentally changes the entire paradigm of telecom numbering.

There are no limits on how many ŠtítMe-protected connections a user can have, or the duration of calls. Unlimited connections are guaranteed, thus enabling the user to secure his entire contact list and move it to the privacy-protected ŠtítMe platform in just one click.

For the first time in telecommunications history, mobile telephone users will be truly able to control the privacy of their mobile phone conversations – via ŠtítMe. The platform empowers users with the ability to sever their secure connections with another ŠtítMe user simply by deleting that user from the contacts list. Once that’s done, the other party will no longer be able to contact the user on his unique ŠtítMe number. The platform also allows users to define when and at what time calls can be received and when they do not wish to be disturbed.

“The goal of the ŠtítMe platform is to make the use of personal mobile telephone numbers obsolete,” said Gurtaj Singh.

In line with the principle of providing privacy for all, Boolean Tech has made the ŠtítMe platform available at an affordable monthly fee of US$3.49. This provides users with unlimited one-on-one connections and unlimited talk time.

"Štít" is a Croatian word that means "Shield". Hence, "ŠtítMe" means, "shield me," reflecting the company’s goal and ethos of shielding its users and ensuring a private one-to-one connection within the shield of total privacy.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
