Chrome extension encrypts your emails, tweets and status updates-Engadget

+++


While you can already find ShadowCrypt on the Chrome web store or install it from its official website, it's still being researched further by its creators from the University of California Berkeley and the University of Maryland. One of those researchers is Devdatta Akhawe (currently a security engineer at Dropbox), who says the extension's purpose is to show how encryption methods can both be strong and compatible with popular social media websites. Seeing as the EFF has just confirmed that Facebook, Whatsapp and other similar services aren't as secure as we'd all like, it's nice having options like ShadowCrypt for times when you want to be extra careful.
