This tool uses a fake-front end to record pictures, audio or video and in that way it strengthens plausible deniability. The recorded files are hidden and encrypted in your device´s memory. You can only find it typing a secure passphrase into the app. In that way even if the device is taken by someone else, they will not be able to access the files.
Once you are connected to the internet, Pawah! will send the encrypted file with a second encryption layer and convert into a block in a secure blockchain. This will make your file reliable and authentic so you can use it for further legal matters or public denunciation.
