The encrypted phone messengers allow you to communicate & confidence, creating a secure environment for your business network.
An encrypted phone messenger is usually a software or hardware based application for your smartphone. Mostly available for operating systems like Android or Apple iPhone. Once loaded, it’s said that your communications will be secure with military-grade encryption, or similar. Your private data can not be hacked through brute force penetration and the program is capable of withstanding penetration hacking to the highest degree.
There is a lot of misinformation online in the media regarding what system is secure and what is not. Most messengers like What’s app, Wikr, and Signal only provide basic encryption security. A true encrypted phone messenger is different, a far cry from any open source messengers found on the internet. A robust encryption system would be totally secure & unbreakable. It would not have vulnerabilities like the free messengers above. Understanding the difference between a free open source messenger service and a high level messenger application is complex, so how can you know a specific messenger is capable of protecting your private data?
Basic messengers will not withstand a cyber attack.
Always be aware of systems offered for free online. Most do not cover the board area needed to safeguard your phone data and information. There are several challenges when you want to protect your mobile data from hackers, to consider unbreakable END to END encryption across the GSM network is just one aspect.
Other aspects of security on a smartphone, constitute more vulnerabilities and flaws for any basic free messenger service. For example, a keyboard on your phone OS is used by a messenger application you have loaded, so you can type. However, porting through a keyboard system from a mobile device, into an application, opens the door to trojans too? As keyloggers read keystrokes on a keyboard. As you might see, basic open source messengers suffer from basic vulnerability as they don’t generate their own keyboard from inside the application, instead they use the phone’s keyboard, no good. This is just one example, there are several issues with free messenger systems who claim they offer the user privacy.
It’s astonishing to know that 90% of applications do not accommodate this basic security requirement, beware of using any open source messenger or free application like the ones mentioned above.
A real military grade system would cost thousands of pounds and would be very special indeed. There are some available to the government and like. These secure communication products are not WhatsApp or similar.
