Encrypted Messaging On Your Smartphone
With everything getting leaked up and IM users increasing to millions, vulnerability is likely to be easier. Encrypted messaging makes sure that your secret stuff is delivered to only the intended users and no one else. Here are some recommended apps that you can use for encrypted messaging. Some of them might also be available on iOS.
Yes, threema is a paid app but it comes with a one time fee only. So you don’t need to have any monthly or yearly subscriptions to use this app. Threema provides real end to end message encryption which includes messages, pictures, videos and even shared locations. The moment your message is delivered it is also removed from the company’s server, You can also encrypt your group messages and use the app anonymously.
In a nutshell threema is one of the best apps for encrypted messaging.
