SMK’s app of the week: Signal 2.0

Ever since the revelations of Edward Snowden and the Sony Pictures hack last year, online privacy (or lack thereof) is a hot-button topic.

While it's not practical for us to employ military-grade systems to protect our data, there are some easy ways to help beef up your security. 

One we're looking at today goes by the unassuming name of Signal 2.0.

No mixed signals

This elegant app helps you make end-to-end encrypted calls and texts, without requiring a Computer Science degree or a big wad of cash.

The app also allows you to send secure photo and video messages.

Signal 2.0 says its tech is so good it couldn't hack into your data, even if it wanted to.

Is it secure?

Signal 2.0 is available for iOS and Android, and also allows you to verify who you're sending messages to, ensuring they arrive in the right place. 

And as its funded by donations Signal is ad-free and open source.

For those looking for a better way to secure their data, Signal 2.0 is worth a peep.
