Are you afraid that your text messages are being read by outside entities? Worried that the government is watching you? Well give TextSecure a shot, the encryption app for all your text messaging needs.
Fear of spies is really just one use for this app. Most people will likely just use it to create private chat groups. Really, it’s just an app to help users keep their private data, private. It’s basically another text option that runs from your phone.
It’s also Open Source so anyone who wants to can go in and give the code a look over to make sure that it’s doing exactly what it said it would do. The app works quickly, just like normal texting and will have your message to your friends in no time. You can use it to plan private parties, a surprise get together, or just keep secrets from other people. Everyone doesn’t have to know your business.
TextSecure is currently only available for smartphones but the developers are working on a version for tablets as well. TextSecure is free on Google Play.
