Do you use any private messenger?

19 replies
I really disappointed in such messengers as Facebook, Whatsapp, Telegram and Skype.
They don't provide any privacy. I can't take this anymore.
I started to use Signal messenger. For sure, not every of people around me is willing to use it, but I feel safe and sure no one is able to read my messages.
It's end-to end-encryption and you can choose different disappearing message intervals for each conversation.
Do you use this messenger? Or any other secured one?

    I've used Skype nearly every day for at least five years.

    I really couldn't care less if someone is wasting their time reading the messages I send through Skype.

    Messenger works really well for me Rob. I just release folks who spam me and proceed. No worries buddy. Let go and move forward.

    What are you communicating that's demands such privacy, or is it that you don't have any real concerns in your life to worry about?

    Oh, I get it. It's' just the principle, right?

    I use Line which is popular in SE Asia. Messenger bugs the hell out of me because they are constantly pushing new features that I accidentally keep pressing and I find adding people on WhatsApp convoluted.

      IS this Line provides any privacy?
      How can you know that all your messages won't trap in the third party sources?

    Which is not safe?
    I think everything is safe if you can use that safely. Let not your device use by others.

      but safety is not about use of other hands.
      messengers are used to connect internet, where there are many hackers.

    In my opinion Signal is the best messenger which you are looking for. This is the most private messenger.

      I don't like Fb messenger as well.
      It's the worst communication app ever.

      probably you are right.
      so you personally use it and have no privacy worries?

    I would recommend you to try e-Chat or Adamant. The second one is paid one and the first one is free to use. Both of them provide you a total anonymity and don't collect any of your personal information.

    I can't agree with this, Telegram is an excellent choice if you need privacy; even on Viber the messages are encrypted.

      There are many facts that Telegram is not so secured is it mentioned to be.
      There are no secret chats option in desktop version.
      And calls unsecured.

    WhatsApp now has end-to-end encryption, probably in response to competition.

      It is not as secured as it seemed to be.
      There are many different reports about its unsecured holes.
