Signal, the most secured messaging app recommended by Snowden

All of us use lots of messaging apps in our daily life. But have you ever imagined that how companies can use your conversations for their own purposes? Or sell to government for their own benefits? The thing that am gonna tell you now will just blow your mind off.

Why messaging apps are not secure?

Snowden warned of several messaging apps, that are not secure enough. They can share your information with government or secret services. Even few of them share user date regularly with police.

Who is Snowden?

Snowden, a secret service agent who worked for several years for the CIA and NSA, the most powerful intelligence agencies of the world. He is famous for his whistle blowing.

What about End to End Encrypted apps?

The applications which comes with end-to-end encryption doesn’t fully protect your messages enough that you can cover your tracks as they store your messages to the server which could be used by them later.

Why to believe me?

A perfect ideal example of such a flaw comes from within Apple. Apple’s iMessage application. An article described that Apple Records Your Messages from iMessage and Sends the Data to Police and also discussed Apple’s messaging application storing your contacts, locations and messages among others. Apple flawlessly hands your private information over to the local (or federal) law agencies at any moment’s notice.

What to use?

For those currently using the open-source end-to-end security application, Signal, you are much safer.

The Signal Messaging application is without a doubt the most secured end-to-end encryption service available. Previously, in 2016, the Federal Department of Investigation demanded a vast range of information for 2 specific targets using Signal. However, though the authorities were able to obtain information via a subpoena against Signal, it was almost absolutely useless to their investigation, anyway. This was a part of an investigation by a federal grand jury located in Virginia.

Signal holds very little information of their respective users, as proven by the latest court saga. Signal’s Open Whisper Systems (OWS) won’t just hand over anything to the government on say so.

Fortunately for the general public, this proves, that when searching for security and privacy communications, Signal is one of the better applications to use, so much so, whistleblower Edward Snowden uses it.
