Built and self-funded by three students in Montreal, the service is called Syme and has now made available to all after an invite-only beta trial. Co-founder Jonathan Hershon commented on its primary appeal: “The overarching goal of Syme is to make encryption accessible and easy to use for people who aren’t geeks or aren’t hackers or who aren’t cryptography experts.” Syme was designed to be…
