    Cool [ROOT][FREE] Private Place - Secure SMS, MMS and Calls is now FREE

    Private Place lets you communicate secretly and securely over normal phone networks

    Feeling slightly paranoid? Need absolute privacy and security? Private Place lets you communicate secretly and securely over normal phone networks. Supports private SMS, MMS and calls.

    The app works on a simple premise - you interact with privatized contacts through an internal dialer and messenger. Secure calls and messages. Hide bills and bank alerts. Dont be afraid to leave your phone lying around. You know the threat is everywhere...

    Were looking for translations! You can find the project here: https://crowdin.com/project/private-place-sms-mms-calls
    Features:

    • Hides all communications with private contacts
    • Disguises itself as a fully working AOSP calculator
    • Secures, sweeps or blocks incoming calls
    • Never turns on the screen in reject mode
    • Selectively clears frequent and recent call lists
    • Encrypts data with passkeys

    Some functionality is currently in Beta:

    - Only four visual styles for now (suggestions welcome, as long as they are within the apps general guidelines - im especially interested in adding new colors).
    - MMS only works with pictures - more formats coming, including slideshows and video.
    WARNING - Limited support provided for multi-SIM devices. I really cannot afford to buy every one of them, so support will always be limited to friends devices and similar SoCs.

    This is a work in progress, feedback and suggestions welcome!

    Also I was importing a person and my screen shot off before I hit done and I lost the contact completely. It didn't save yet in your app but already had removed it from the contacts. I had close on screen off selected.
