When it comes to speaking in private in today's world, practically the only way to do so is by using one of these encrypted communication tools. Encryption isn't just for governments trying to secure data or for hackers trying to avoid detection. Nowadays there are a variety of applications designed to make private communication, whether that's via email, text message or app, secure and safe. These tools are especially useful for those who deal with sensitive information in their careers or who fear the prying eyes of digital thieves.

These encrypted communication tools are designed to be approachable and easy to use. This ease of use ensures that anyone can install an encrypted keyboard on their smartphone or start sending encrypted emails instantly. All of these are third party apps, but it may not be long until software developers like Apple and Chrome begin heavily focusing on creating encrypted communication tools for consumer products.
