|1. Red light: the connection is starting. This step may take several seconds.|
|3. Green light: secure call is established. You can now speak securely.|
Checking your security
A PrivateGSM call is always encrypted. The call is automatically secured during the call setup. As soon as the call is established you can immediately start to talk securely with your call peer.
The security of the call is based on a digital certificate verification on the SIP/TLS server. If a certificate error appears check whether the date of your phone is correct. If the date is correct it is possible that the certificate is wrong, misconfigured or expired or that your phone is undergoing a security attack. In these cases always contact your system administrator.
