What is a Ccc email?
A Ccc email is a self-destructing email sent via the Ccc field or in Ccc Mode. These emails can only be read once, are protected against screenshots and cannot be forwarded or printed. All Ccc emails are end-to-end encrypted and come with an extra layer of security using Touch ID, when present.

What is the difference between the Ccc Field and Ccc Mode?
In the Ccc field, only the person Ccc’ed receives the email that self-destructs upon closing. The recipients in the other fields can keep the email as it acts as a regular email. When a person is Ccc’ed with others in the ‘to’ and/or ‘cc’ and ‘bcc’ field, they can see the other recipients of the email but the other recipients can’t see them.                                                                                      
In Ccc Mode, every recipient of the email receives a confidential email that can only opened once and, depending on the length of the message, only read in part on their screen. The recipients can reply, but cannot add anyone to the response. They can however, remove recipients from the response.            

How are Ccc messages protected from screenshots?
Screenshot protection is offered in a dual-layered approach:
The sender, recipient, subject line and message never appear on the same screen. Furthermore, the message is blurred and only comes into focus when your finger is touching the device.
If you attempt to take a screenshot, the Ccc message will immediately self-destruct and the recipient will be notified right away.

What happens when I send a Ccc message to someone that doesn’t have the app?
Currently, recipients need to be connected to Confidential CC in order to read your Ccc message. If they are not, they will receive a notification email urging them to download the app in order to view your message. However, any recipient on any device can read regular emails sent via the Confidential CC app. Our team is hard at work developing a feature that will allow recipients to view a preview of your Ccc message even if they don’t have the app installed on their device.

Your recipient does not need to have Confidential CC installed on their device in order to read your Ccc message. They will receive a notification email that will allow them to view a one-time preview of your message in their browser. As with all Ccc messages, it is protected against screenshots, can only be viewed one time, cannot be forwarded or printed, and will immediately self-destruct once read.

How can I tell if my Ccc message has been read?
Confidential CC does not currently offer read receipts on emails sent via Ccc, however our team is hard at work adding this feature to the next update.

How can I hide the sender’s name and subject line in my inbox or email notifications?
We know how important privacy is to you. You can adjust your Confidential Display options by tapping the Settings icon at the bottom of your menu, go into Email Settings, then Display and shift the toggle bar to turn on Confidential Display. Selecting this option will keep the sender’s photo and name private for all Ccc emails in your inbox. To subject line of Ccc emails is always kept private.

How do I cancel an accidentally sent email? Can I set my cancel “send” window for a shorter or longer period of time?
If you accidentally hit send, you are able to cancel the sending of your message within the first five seconds, which is surprisingly long when you’ve hit send by accident. Over time we will make that time adjustable for users.

What is the shaking search feature and can it turn on by itself while in my pocket?
Confidential CC’s search functionality comes into play when you are looking for a particular word or phrase in an individual email. When you have the email open, simply shake your phone to reveal a search bar. Type in the word or phrase, and it will bring you to it. It can only be turned on if you have left your phone on an open email.

How does Confidential CC keep my emails secure?
Every Ccc email is sent encrypted end-to-end utilizing 3DES method of encryption.

Does Confidential CC upload my contact book into its servers?
Similar to many mobile applications, Confidential CC accesses your contacts only with your permission as a way for you to easily communicate with them via the app.

Does Confidential CC store my IP address or UDID?
No. This information is not stored.

Where are my messages stored and how secure are those servers?
Confidential CC encryption assigns multiple, unique private keys to each message sent and only the CCC platform has the key to “unlock” the content. Once the content has been unlocked (the email has been read) it self-destructs and is erased from the Confidential CC server, and all client devices, immediately. No data is ever kept or logged on Confidential CC’s servers, plus, no content is ever saved in your cache, so there is never a record of your Ccc emails.

Who owns the messages and media communicated via Confidential CC?
Confidential CC owns all the messages and media communicated via the app. Remember, we believe in your right to privacy and we would never share your information or content communicated through the system.

Where are my attachments stored and how secure is that location?
Attachments sent via the Ccc field / Mode are never stored on our servers, they are subject to the same self-destruction as the emails they are attached to. Any other attachments sent via non-Ccc email are stored on our servers but are never accessed or shared.

How does Confidential CC cooperate with law enforcement and/or the government if asked? Will I be notified if my information was requested?
Since no information is stored, it is impossible to pull information requested by law enforcement. However, we will comply with local or foreign law enforcement agencies requests but only when done through appropriate legal process such as a subpoena, court order, or other valid legal requests.

Is there an FBI “back door” into Confidential CC?
No, there is no back door for the FBI but as mentioned above, Confidential CC will comply with any requests accompanied with proper legal documentation from the FBI.
