News Videos Android iPad iPhone Ubisoft


Hackers everywhere; Ubisoft have released a free Watch_Dogs tie-in application on the Apple App and Google Play stores called H_ide, which allows you to encrypt text messages, modulate your voice and more.

H_ide gives you the following methods of communicating with your friends and ‘vanishing from the network’:

  • Anonymous voice messages
  • Encrypted text messages
  • Encrypt pictures
  • Record a message (up to 20 seconds)
  • Choose a filter to modulate your voice
  • Send it to your friend
  • Your friend will receive a link to listen to your message
  • Share content on social networks or send directly as SMS


There is also a new HackerHunt_ activity that utilises the WeAreData website for those of you who reside in London, England. You can download H_ide for your iDevice here, or for your Android device here. Take a look at the gallery directly below, which holds screen captures of elements of the app listed above, or watch the announcement trailer embedded at the bottom of this article (features a QR code you can scan to download the app that way).

I am a graduate of the Bachelor of Interactive Entertainment (w/ major in Games Design) course at Qantm College, Sydney.
