Planned maintenance scheduled for 6th March to 9th March: During this time we will be moving some of our infrastructure and implementing changes to our codebase to prepare for the API beta. Some or all services might be unavailable during this time, everyone that has a subscription will be recompensated with additional time. We apologise for this inconvenience.
We use industry standard 256-bit asymmetric encryption to encrypt your all your data using your own personal keypair. We physically cannot access your information even if we were compelled to do so.
You can use our powerful API access your messages and send new ones via any device... iPhone, Android? Terminal? Go ahead!

We include a full and encrypted contacts system so you can save your contacts, you can import and export contacts using VCF files.
All of our data is hosted on servers located physically in Iceland, a country that prides itself on its privacy laws. Making additional arragements to keep your data safe is our top priority in addition to full encryption.

All of your frequently asked questions answered.
The public / private keypair is stored within our database servers in Iceland, there are two asymmetric keys, master and encryption. The master key is used to encrypt your encryption key while the encryption key is used to encrypt any data you have. We do not have access to either of them as your passphrase is required to decrypt. You can retreive them by downloading your data in the dashboard.
You're right, nothing and nobody can be trusted, however we have made our best efforts be as transparent as possible and have therefore released our user encryption module source code on GitHub, you can access it by clicking the icon in the footer. The general rule is that you shouldn't provide any information you wouldn't want to be leaked.
No, while we make sure to encrypt any data stored on our servers / infrastructure, data is not being encrypted as soon as it exits our systems onto the GSM / CMDA network.
Anything you want really, if you need to create a second account on Signal, Telegram, Whatsapp or any other service that requires a mobile phone number. You can even use it with social networks to stop them selling your data to advertisers. You can use it to message friends or relatives if you need to.
You can receive and send messages from any country available in our helpful message pricing box. Basic rule is that most countries will work perfectly fine, on some sent messages however your number may be replaced with a "SMS" contact, in those cases we include your number at the end of the message.
Not officially for obvious reasons, however you can test the system by messaging our public number available on the homepage.
Nope, as far as we are aware no incoming/outgoing messages are blocked and no filtering is taking place.
Most of the information we store is encrypted with your private key, only some metadata (such as dates) remains unencrypted. We do recommend you use an email that cannot be traced back to you.
We will comply with any lawful search warrant, however due to our security practice our canary, which you can find in the footer, will not get updated.
Nope, even if we wanted to, we could not, we only know when they arrive but not much else.
Please do not use Crypton.sh for evil things (or harm anybody for that matter), we would appreciate not having police coming over.
At the moment we only offer phone numbers from the United Kingdom, but we are working on providing more countries.
Yes, our service is available over TOR, you can find the link in the footer.
We try to recycle phone numbers when used, sometimes however this doesn't happen and we cannot guarantee it, we will of course exchange your number if it does not work free of charge.
Your number is put into a grace mode for one week where you will be sent and email every day, as long as you don't select it for removal and have enough top-up available, your number will renew automatically.
