A new app called 'Threema' encrypts text messages to ensure that only the reader and sender are able to see the sent message. While it may seem like an unnecessary service, Threema offers piece of mind for anyone who may be worried about third-parties accessing their information.
The app works by using end-to-end encryption to secure all of your private and group communications. This technology ensures that only the individuals on the sending and the receiving ends of a message will be able to read the texts sent. As a result, your information is completely safe from third parties. For an added level of protection, you can even use the app anonymously by opting for a randomly generated eight digit phone number.
Threema not only encrypts your text messages, but the app also allows you to verify your contacts by scanning their QR codes or fingerprints. With so many high-tech privacy features in place, you will never have to worry about your information being compromised.
