After realising that very bad people were eavesdropping on my conversations, and also trying to set me up so that I would appear to be a criminal, I decided to do something about it.
7 years ago, I created a communications app that I believed would make it impossible for spies and other bad people from maliciously accessing my conversations.
I designed the app so that even I would not know who was communicating with who, if they did their communications via the app. Once someone downloaded the app, you were issued with an App Number, that the app generated automatically and randomly.
This is the number the app users were keying in to communicate with another person, as long as that person had the app on their mobile device, and you knew their App Number. Each App Number was unique, of course. But the app was also designed so that, if you wanted to change your App Number, all you needed to do was uninstall it, then reinstall.
An install/reinstall automatically generated a new, random App Number. Therefore, you could change your App Number as many times as you wished, making it impossible for bad people to know your current App Number.
Therefore, if you felt someone should no longer know your App Number, or did not wish to communicate with them any more, you simply uninstalled and reinstalled the app.
A user’s phone number and other details were not collected by the app. Therefore, no one, including myself, would know who was communicating with who.
I had designed the app such that, even if some entity hacked into my server, all they would see would be random numbers and messages, nothing to indicate who was behind what number or message, unless the users wrote something that would identify them.
For such an app to serve its intended purpose, it needed to be installed by random people. So I availed it in Android stores, free of charge. An app with many active users can earn money through ads. Therefore, if it became successful, I would have added ads.
People were downloading the app, and I felt it would serve the intended purpose. But I started receiving messages that I could only interpret as threats.
When I looked critically at the threats, I had no doubt about who was behind it. I analysed the situation and decided that the app made it very easy for my detractors to set me up as a criminal.
I already knew they were trying very hard to have me be seen as a terrorist. Knowing what they had been doing to me, and the resources at their disposal, I believed that this scenario was very possible:
They would make sure the app was “invisible” to most normal visitors to the Android store, then promote it to real terrorists/terrorists’ sympathisers, child molesters etc. Then they would report that I had deliberately made that app to promote terrorism/criminal activity.
They would then use their media to highlight the story…
I deleted the app from Android stores, changed the codes so that even those who had downloaded, it wouldn’t work anymore, and decided never to make a comms app again.
I also stopped working in that industry.
If there were genuine concerns that the app could be attractive to evil people, I would have made the necessary changes so that it would not be misused. Apps are always getting updated to deal with emerging issues.
But what I was receiving were threats, based on malice and stereotypes.
Regarding My Mobile Apps & Games
I apologise in case anyone has ever installed my mobile apps or games and found them not as good as they expected. The reason is because I have not been able to update my games (or make any new game/app) for several years now, because of the issues discussed in this website, regarding a foreign spy agency.
Several of my apps are no longer available on any store because, as anyone involved in app development knows, apps require regular updating, else, they become unusable.
When I was making mobile games/apps (stopped about 5 years ago), I created 2 Google Play accounts (plan was for 1 to be for games, other for serious apps). Some games and one app are still available on Google Play store. I also have one app and 2 games still available at iOS App Store.
Please download one of my app/games and you might just like it! Thank you.
