Rare to find a fan of active communication in popular instant messengers, which would not think about the secrecy of personal correspondence. Moreover, the majority of the representatives of the IT industry (analysts, developers, media) constantly heated this topic to the identification of new vulnerabilities, dangers of data theft and other negative facts. Maybe it’s paranoia, and maybe a serious topic for thought, but for Android smartphones there are a number of programs for communication, which are positioned as the most safe.
Signal Private Messenger
The application protects the sides end-to-end encryption, thanks to which p2p text messaging and media files are available exclusively to the participating in communication. Moreover, if the communications intercepts, the possibility to decrypt without knowledge of the algorithms will not work. Plus, the application is free, open source, and has a simple and intuitive interface. The rest is the usual messenger with support for encrypted voice messages, group chat and the built-in file sharing.
Messenger is a unique and interesting method of securing data where cryptographic encryption keys quite often replacing ageing. Thanks to hacking attempts almost reduced to zero. Also significantly complicates the “work” hackers instant deletion of incoming data from the servers. And yet, Threema applies only in the paid version.
This software is equipped with similar functionality with the above programs, but with their “chips” with regards to retention and deletion of correspondences. The first feature – a built-in option “shredder”, which permanently cleans the chat history and file transfers. The second advantage is to provide the ability to specify a specific period of time, when all the data will self-destruct.
The program is also equipped with advanced system end-to-end encryption, which is called the Axolotl. It differs from similar software encoding not only messages, but also various contacts and accounts. The main interest presents the messenger – sending coded messages to the mobile number of the subscriber in the form of SMS. That is, the recipient to install the Silence no need.
This is the last of the list of most protected messengers for smartphones on the Android system, which also, as in Wickr Me embedded fine-tune the traces of communication. The most interesting feature of Dust – instant notification of a user when his counterpart makes a screenshot (screenshot). In addition, the app has all the features a social network where you can make friends and chat in sirsasana environment.
