Top 5 Secure Messaging Apps

What happens to message once you click send? Are your private messages even secure when data breaches are at an all-time high?

Tech companies have started to offer secure messaging apps, so that your personal information and messages won't fall in the wrong hands.

Top 5 Secure Messaging Apps

Whether you're concerned about your personal messages being read by hackers, government advertisers or the police, full encryption can protect your privacy.

The demand for secure apps have certainly skyrocketed in recent years, and it's no surprise that we're being spoiled with choices and promises of safety.

But from so many options, which secure messaging apps is right for you? Here is some additional info and insights on the most secure apps to help you decide:

Zangi Safe Messenger

With Zangi Safe Messenger's full encryption, your messages get securely sent to that one person (or group) you're communicating with, so only they can read your message. Nobody in between, not even Zangi, has access to your communications. Zangi, one of the most secure messaging apps, keeps your communications private by not storing anything on any servers and by not leaving traces on the Internet. The app works everywhere in the world. Even with crowded Wi-Fi or slow network, Zangi still promise to give you clean and uninterrupted video and voice calls.


Signal messages and calls are painstakingly engineered to keep your communication secure. They can't read your messages or see your calls, and no one else in between can either. To help you stay private, you don't need a login or password to sign up with Signal, your phone number is enough.


Everything in Telegram is encrypted using '256-bit symmetric AES encryption, 2048-bit RSA encryption, and Diffie–Hellman secure key exchange'. All messages in secret chats use end-to-end encryption, meaning only you and the recipient can read those messages. The desktop version is also available, which doesn't give any third party access to user data, but they do store some of it on their servers.


One of the most-used messaging apps among journalists and activists id Wickr, with end-to-end encryption for text messages, videos, pictures and voice messages. Manually delete sent messages or use the self-destruct time for sent messages. Deleted messages can never be recovered. To help you stay private, Wickr also supports screenshot protection so no one will be able to save screenshots of self-destructing messages.

I left the 5th one for you. :slightly_smiling_face: Share your opinion, which one you think is the best among secure messaging apps?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
