Secure Messaging for iPhoneWhere is Information Stored in Qliq?

Let’s start with where it is not. With Qliq Secure Texting, your protected health information (PHI) is never stored in the Cloud. We use a messaging architecture called “cloud pass-thru” where messages travel directly from one user to another.

The messages pass through our servers in the cloud on the way to the recipient, never being stored there.

So where are they for you? Your messages are stored behind your firewall in the qliqSOFT archive. We cannot access them, even if we wanted to.


8 iPhone Texting Apps that are not HIPAA Compliant

Not all messaging apps are created equal. If you are using iMessage or regular SMS texting to send private information, your messages at risk of being accessed without your consent.

The following apps are not HIPAA-compliant and are not secure solutions for sending protected information.

  1. WhatsApp
  2. Telegram
  3. Viber
  4. Signal
  5. Threema
  6. KakaoTalk
  7. Facebook Messenger
  8. Silence

Many of these apps are heavily encrypted and offer some security for personal use, but HIPAA regulations for healthcare go far beyond this to be considered fully compliant.

Qliq’s security surpasses these messaging apps, but it also includes several specific features that allow it to be used by healthcare providers, such as user authentication and comprehensive access logs.
