Communicating with decency – current state

It’s now mid-2016. How should we be communicating with people with some semblance of privacy/decency, without having others record and monetize our every thought or feeling put in words?

By now, a large number of people use smartphones. If you have any of the below:

  • an Android phone
  • an iPhone

…the best app for secure and private communication is Signal – by WhisperSystems.

It’s extremely easy to use and the most private way of sending text messages, photos, videos to one or more people. It’s also the most private way of having a phone call.

Signal needs an Internet connection to work.

Other apps (like WhatsApp, Messenger, Line, Viber etc) all have inferior privacy features to Signal, or are actively monetizing your activity, snooping on your phone’s contact list etc.

If you care about your privacy, reduce the use of email or other apps and start using Signal now.
