Church Group communications are open for everyone to read. For Private Groups, PrayerGroup® uses two layers of encryption to protect user data. The first layer pertains to “data in flight,” meaning when any data is being transmitted from one place – like your smartphone – to another, like PrayerGroup®’s backend for distribution to others. The second layer pertains to “data at rest,” which is data that is stored on our backend servers to create the service that all collectively use..
PrayerGroup® uses TLS to encrypt all data in flight. TLS is the core encryption technology that protects all communications over the internet.
To protect data at rest, PrayerGroup® creates a separate encryption key pair for each group. Members of each group automatically receive the encryption keys for the groups to which they belong. These keys allow all data at rest to be encrypted – even from PrayerGroup® developers – while allowing members of each group to freely communicate with each other.
