These days, we are living our most of lives online from watching movies to shopping and much more. It's a known fact that the data we have is not strongly protected and vulnerable to cybercriminals as well.
There are companies these days, which takes the security precautions very seriously and one such company is Apple. Apple takes security seriously and has a lot of good, built-in features that you can take advantage of to make your iPhone safer.
What is Encryption?
Encryption is basically a process, where the data is translated into an unrecognizable code to achieve data security.
Today, we have jotted down the list of encrypted app, that you can use on your iPhone.
Available on both Android and iOS, it has end-to-end encryption and also can strip out metadata such as the timestamp from conversations. You can program the messages to self-destruct after a certain period of time has expired.
This is the replacement for Android's stock messaging app, where it stores all messages you receive in an encrypted database. If both the sender and receiver use this app, then it will recognize this and use end-to-end encryption to send text and media.
This messaging app is encrypted end-to-end, doesn't record metadata of messages and doesn't store a copy of your messages as well. Source code for this app is available online so that experts can constantly keep an eye on its vulnerabilities.
This app features encryption using SSL and also supports securely deleting messages. It also has secure group messaging, where it lets the users talk safely with multiple people. Moreover, this app supports Bitcoin payments which allows you to safely send and receive cash from contacts.
Here, in this app, the conversations are encrypted and can be accessed on the same device. It also has a secret chat feature, which can be self-destructed in a specific time. However, the local message database is not encrypted by default so you have to set a password. The encryption algorithm here is MTProto and it was created by the Telegram developers.
