Which are the best Secure Instant Messaging Apps for 2021? We will discuss Signal, XMPP (Jabber), Matrix.Org (Element), Briar, Threema, Session, and compare them to Whatsapp. We will cover only those apps that are open source, support both 2-part and group End-to-End Encryption (E2EE).

After discussing the various merits and demerits of each platform, I will present a list of 3 standout platforms and I will explain why they stand out among the pack.

-- Correction on Video: Apparently Signal has a desktop app, though it requires the Phone app first. But I wasn't aware of this previously. Still recommended!

I'm the Internet Privacy Guy. I'm a public interest technologist. I'm here to educate. You are losing your Internet privacy and Internet security every day if you don't fight for it. Your data is collected with endless permanent data mining. Learn about a TOR router, a VPN , antivirus, spyware, firewalls, IP address, wifi triangulation, data privacy regulation, backups and tech tools, and evading mass surveillance from NSA, CIA, FBI. Learn how to be anonymous on the Internet so you are not profiled. Learn to speak freely with pseudo anonymity. Learn more about the dangers of the inernet and the dangers of social media, dangers of email.


I like alternative communication technology like Amateur Radio and data communications using Analog. I'm a licensed HAM operator.
