With many of us storing more personal information on our smartphones than ever before, privacy is a big concern. When it comes to messages there are lots of ways people can eavesdrop on your conversations, from surveillance software through to someone physically picking up your phone and reading your texts.
G Data Secure Chat is just one of many SMS encryption apps currently on the market, but it does include some useful extra features such as self-destructing messages that come in handy for particularly sensitive information. The downside is that although you can use the app to message anyone, you can only send encrypted messages to people who are also using Secure Chat.
Download the free G Data Secure Chat app from Google Play. When you launch the app, it’ll ask you to register by entering your country and phone number.
