Take back control of your email with revolutionary SiccuraSafemail app
  • Stop prying eyes
  • Keep your content rights and existing email accounts! 
  • Recall or destroy emails at any time
  • Military grade encryption keeps content secure 

Siccura Safemail, a revolutionary new app, is launched today allowing users to take back complete control of their emails and attachments thanks to a military grade, unique encryption process from Sicurra, a simple-to-use solution that puts total control of your personal data into your hands only.

Using blockchain and advanced data encryption, Siccura Safemail puts users back in the driving seat when it comes to emails and attachments. Users can continue to use their existing email accounts such as Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook and easily monitor and manage who can view, share, forward and even copy their emails and attachments. They can also remotely recall messages and associated attached files at any time.

Developed in response to the volume and vulnerability of emails shared and stored every day, Siccura Safemail is a simple to use application for consumers, that protects their privacy and gives them complete ownership of everything they send, share and store.

The team at Siccura passionately believes that digital privacy is more than a necessity; it is a right. It has developed SiccuraSafemail based on the idea that emails should be protected from the moment they are created.

The application gives users the ultimate in security for all emails as well as any files that are sent as attachments. Uniquely, the Siccura Safemail also allows users to stop contacts from sharing, forwarding or copying emails and attachments. It can also be used across multiple email accounts and devices.

Unlike the majority of organisations, Siccura has a zero-knowledge policy. It does not store or harvest users’ data for its benefit. Instead, the app harnesses a unique encryption and digital ‘key’ distribution process, based on pending UK patent application no. GB1720175.7, which combines a very high level of security with an incredibly simple to use approach.

Ajit Patel, founder of Siccura comments: “Email is now central to the smooth running of our lives from office work to making a dinner reservation or keeping up with our family and friends. But every time you open an email or click on a link you are creating a digital footprint and leaving a trail of data online that says a lot about you – much of which is very personal. This trail can be easily followed and if you’re not careful enough it can be used and manipulated. We want to empower people to take back control of their digital lives. We strongly believe that digital privacy is a right, not a nice to have. Now, with one application, you can take control of every email you send, share and store.

“Although it is powered by highly sophisticated technology, Siccura Safemail is incredibly simple to use. Unlike other security solutions, you don’t need to change your email platform. We also don’t agree that surrendering your privacy is the price you have to pay to take advantage of our services, which is why users can access our services with complete anonymity.

“You don’t need to be vulnerable when it comes to email, we urge everyone to take back control today!”

To mark the launch, Siccura has compiled and released a free expert guide, to help equip people with the knowledge to live a safer digital life. The guide outlines the different ways peoples’ emails are vulnerable online and offers key advice and the steps to take to protect the privacy and security of your online communications.

The guide can be downloaded for free here.

Hyundai Motor revises down fourth-quarter operating profit after costly Kona EV recall

Hyundai Motor revises down fourth-quarter operating profit after costly Kona EV recall 1

SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korea’s Hyundai Motor Co revised down its fourth-quarter operating profit by nearly a fifth after a costly $900 million recall to replace battery systems in some 82,000 electric vehicles globally.

It said on Thursday that the quarter’s profit came in at 1.3 trillion won ($1.2 billion), down from the 1.6 trillion won it had initially reported in late January.

The recall mostly concerns the Kona EV, Hyundai’s biggest-selling electric car which was first recalled late last year for a software upgrade after a spate of fires.

Hyundai’s Kona EV uses batteries manufactured by LG Chem Ltd’s wholly owned battery division LG Energy Solution.

Ladbrokes owner holds off on dividend even as profit jumps

Ladbrokes owner holds off on dividend even as profit jumps 2

(Reuters) – Ladbrokes owner Entain said COVID-19 uncertainties kept it from declaring a dividend despite a jump in 2020 earnings and that it was expecting online volumes to ease when shops re-open after surging during lockdowns.

Entain, which rejected MGM’s $11 billion takeover offer in January, posted an 11% rise in 2020 core earnings to 843.1 million pounds as it benefited from a 50% jump in online profit.

However, the company said given the ongoing uncertainty as a result of COVID-19, the board does not consider it prudent to pay a dividend at this time.

While the pandemic led to the cancellation of sporting and other events and hindered betting in physical shops, a surge in online betting during lockdowns encouraged the FTSE 100 firm to bump up its profit outlook twice last year.

Entain said it had started the year with good momentum in line with expectations and hope to see normality returning over the coming months.

The company also said while it was expecting online volumes to ease when shops in core online territories re-open, the trends seen during the pandemic could remain positive for the global online gaming market. ($1 = 0.7165 pounds)

Exxon and Macquarie in $11.7 billion U.S. lawsuit over gas contract

Exxon and Macquarie in $11.7 billion U.S. lawsuit over gas contract 3

HOUSTON (Reuters) – Exxon Mobil Corp is suing Australia’s Macquarie Energy in a Texas court in a $11.7 billion lawsuit over missed deliveries during last month’s winter freeze in the central United States.

The lawsuit filed by Exxon’s natural gas business said the massive storm and state declarations of emergencies prevented it from fulfilling its supply commitment to Macquarie Energy, the second largest U.S. gas marketer.

Exxon is asking the Texas court to rule that the massive storm, caused when an arctic air mass swept the central United States, was a natural disaster.

Such a ruling would allow Exxon to break its contract with Macquarie without a penalty, overriding a demand from the Australian company that Exxon cover the wholesaler’s $11.7 billion in damages for missed deliveries.

U.S. gas demand and prices soared last month when freezing temperatures hit as far south as Texas, where 4.3 million homes lost power.

A Macquarie spokesperson in Australia declined immediate comment. Exxon did not reply to a request for comment after normal business hours.

The cold sent spot gas at a west Texas hub to $203.50 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) on Feb. 16. It also prompted Texas and Louisiana to declare emergencies and direct gas supplies to the states’ power generators.

Australia’s Macquarie was one of the largest winners in the cold snap, benefiting from record U.S. natural gas prices. It could collect a $317 million profit from a weather related gas binge, analysts said.

Macquarie had rejected Exxon’s own declaration of a natural disaster, the lawsuit said, but the Australian company later issued its own force majeure declaration over gas it had agreed to provide Exxon in Texas.
