Cyph is a cryptographically secure messaging and social networking service, providing an extreme level of privacy combined with best-in-class ease of use.
Cyph's patented technology — built by former SpaceX engineers, audited by Cure53, and the basis of research presentations at Black Hat and DEF CON — uniquely allows Cyph to solve the major security and usability limitations of conventional solutions. Only Cyph automatically mitigates man-in-the-middle attacks (with no manual in-person fingerprint verification), offers both native apps and cryptographically secure web access (thanks to WebSign), and as a bonus protects present-day end-to-end encrypted data from future quantum computing attacks.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install Cyph, simply use the following command:
