Are you concerned that your personal conversations might get leaked or exposed? Are you worried about the security measures provided by messaging apps? You’re not alone! It’s a common struggle for many people to find a reliable and safe haven to hold a secure conversation through messaging. In the modern-day world, encryption of messages has become vital due to an increase in cyberattacks and the fact that cybercriminals continue to upgrade their technologies. Not only does encryption of messages protect your data, but it also protects your personal life. Remember, everything we do nowadays, be it communicating with our close ones, boss, or personal assistant, has to somehow pass through a messaging app.

There are a lot of articles about how to stay safe while online. In addition to educating yourself on safety tips, you should also stay on top of additions or improvements to sites and apps that you currently use for messaging purposes.

Finding a Secure Messaging Platform

Message encryption is one of the most important security measures that software's must implement. With end-to-end encryption, only you and the designated receiver have the permission to view and read messages. If a hacker or any third party gets hold of your conversation (since it is end-to-end encrypted), they will only see a string of code that makes no sense. With this form of technology, users have become more trusting in messaging applications.

Some of the Top Messaging Platforms to Consider

1. Viber

2. Signal

3. Telegram

4. Silence

5. LINE

6. Threema

7. Wire

8. Whatsapp

9. Cyphr
