TextSecure
=================
# TextSecure
A secure text messaging application for Android.
TextSecure is a messaging app for easy private communicate with friends.
TextSecure is a replacement for the standard text messaging application, allowing you to send and receive text messages as normal. Additionally, TextSecure provides:
TextSecure can use either data (WiFi/3G/4G) or SMS to communicate securely, and all TextSecure
messages can also be encrypted locally on your device.
1. *Local Encryption* -- All text messages, regardless of destination, that are sent or received with TextSecure are stored in an encrypted database on your phone.
2. *Wire Encryption* -- When communicating with a recipient who is also using TextSecure, text messages are encrypted during transmission.
Currently available on the Play store.
