Secured Communications

WhatsApp

WhatsApp is a free messaging app, owned by Facebook, which is available on iOS and Android devices. It allows end-to-end encryption, meaning only the sender and recipient can read messages, view photos, listen to voice recordings, access files or see video clips.

Add us on WhatsApp by adding 083 381 5067 to your contacts.

Signal

Sigma is a free messaging app, also available on iOS and Android devices. It offers end-to-end encryption to send messages, make calls and send photo or video content. The app also includes a feature which makes message self-destruct – removing them from both the sender and recipient’s phones after a set amount of time, once it has been seen. No metadata regarding communications are retained by Signal.

Add us on Signal by adding 083 381 5067 to your contacts.

Threema

Like WhatsApp and Signal, Threema allows users to send encrypted text messages on iOS and Android – as well as voice calls, voice recordings and files. Threema does not require identifiable personal information such as phone numbers or emails.

Each user generates a random Threema ID, allowing you to use the app with complete anonymity. Messages are deleted immediately after delivery and no contact lists are managed on servers but instead on users’ own devices.

Our Threema ID is: 7M57CZWA

An Post

You can send us hard copy information via An Post in Ireland. Our mailing address is: Belpatrick, Smarmore, Ardee, Co. Louth, A92 N663.

LouthNow.ie review messages sent to us on a regular basis but we cannot guarantee to reply to each individual instance of correspondence.

Please note: news or story tips that warrant secure communications should be newsworthy, with documentation or evidence essential.
