Silent Text: Basic Anonymity at a Hefty Price

Silent Text, uses a ZRTP-like proprietary instant messaging system over the Jabber XMPP instant message transport. Features include encrypted message attachments, a burn function with time delay that deletes the texts from sender and receiver devices, and encrypted geotagging for sharing locations.

Silent Circle is an encrypted voice, video, text and file-transfer protocol that’s available in app forms for Android devices. The voice or phone app uses the ZRTP key agreement protocol designed by the creator of PGP, or Pretty Good Privacy — a guy called Phil Zimmermann who is widely regarded as the father of encrypted communication tools.
