How To Keep NSA Computers From Turning Your Phone Conversations Into Searchable Text

The Intercept gives valuable advice related to the recent disclosures:

[T]he real solution is end-to-end encryption, preferably of the unbreakable kind.

And as luck would have it, you can have exactly that on your mobile phone, for the price of zero dollars and zero cents.

The Intercept’s Micah Lee wrote about this in March, in an article titled: “You Should Really Consider Installing Signal, an Encrypted Messaging App for iPhone.”

(Signal is for iPhone and iPads, and encrypts both voice and texts; RedPhone is the Android version of the voice product; TextSecure is the Android version of the text product.)

Update November 4, 2015: The app is now called “Signal” on both Android and iOS.
