Hello,

 

Can you recommend fast and secure messenger? I am looking for secure communication and quick transfer of different types of files.

I heard somethin about telegram.. It seems that you can send text with a best encryption, also you can self destruct the message...if someone knows more about it, let us know!

In the beginning, I believed that it is really secure and no data is stored on their servers. But after that I decided to test something - I sent a Wireshark and immediately understood that the messages you send goes firstly to a server and after that to the receiver. Even if you send a message while the other part is offline and sign out from the messenger, as soon as he becomes online, he receives the message. This automatically means that there is a server in the middle where all the information is stored.

Yes Threema is a good choice, and it is available on different platforms.

I went through their website and noticed that in one of the features was mentioned:  "Group memberships and contact lists are managed on your device only, messages are immediately deleted after they have been delivered." Immediately deleted? It doesn't sound very reliable...
