Signal Private Messaging, by Open Whisper Systems, makes securely chatting with your friends possible. Using Signal, you can communicate with all of your friends, as long as they have the app downloaded, across any operating system. You can talk to friends one-on-one or you can make group chats. All of the text and media that is sent and received is securely sent through Signal's servers, and Signal is never able to see what you send or receive.
The nice part about Signal is that you do not have to use any logins or screen names, all you need to use is a cell phone number.
Signal, like Wire, is another great way to message your friends securely. They are both great tools in the fight against securing your personal information. The only problem is that most likely just about none of your friends have it downloaded. This is the big downside to encrypted messaging services.
Everyone needs to have the app downloaded to use it and it can be very hard to get people to care about their privacy. Everyone should be messaging through these apps now especially considering after the Vault 7 CIA leak we now know that the CIA has access to just about everything we do on our phones.
People need to start caring about their privacy now, before it gets bad, otherwise there will be many major problems faced by our country and society down the road.
Keeply is an iPhone and Android application that lets you securely store private notes, photos, passwords, etc. Keeply lets you securely store these documents on your phone and keeps them password protected. It has many security features and multiple free and paid option, so it is the perfect solution to storing sensitive information on your phone.
