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.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
