Sicher messaging app brings end-to-end encryption to your Android, iOS and Windows Phone chats
Made in Germany, the new cross-platform Sicher app is focused on secure messaging, promising true end-to-end encryption for your chat sessions - a feat no doubt important in a day and age where every agency or private entity can snoop on your convos.
The kicker is that no messages or files are ever sent without encryption in any step of the way, so nobody, including the service provider, can check out your message contents, and they can't even know the type of file you are sending. Speaking of which, Sicher lets you not only communicate with dry chat instant messaging, but also send through pictures, videos, PDF, Word, Excel, and so on files, making it a great alternative to popular unsecure messenger channels.
As usual with this type of apps, you need to supply a valid phone number where your secure identification code will be sent to, and if you want to use the Sicher secure messaging app on a tablet that doesn't have cellular connectivity, you'd have to first get a code on another device via text messaging, and then you'll be good to go.
