In May 2013 in an article written by Nicole Perlroth, Silent Circle’s technology that was used by the federal government was highlighted in an article about securing phone records. The article cites the fact that law enforcement officials easily seized the phone records of members of the Associated Press earlier in 2013. In the article, Silent Circle’s mobile technology is offered as a potential and very effective solution for people or agencies who are motivated to keep their texts, emails and phone conversations private.
