Kik says that their client is using ssl etc. But it's kind of hard to tell if the messages is actually encrypted between the devices. What i can understand is that they don't got device-to-device encryption.

WhatsApp is it the same with.

Is there any other IM clients out there for the mobile phones that you really can trust on the encryption (aes256 or better) ?

I am looking for the best device-To-device encryption message app for iPhone & Android.

Gibberbot is made by the same project team that created Tor for Android. It's opensource so you can check out it's encryption and see if it satisfies you.

  • Is this the only alternative between a iOS & Android device? There must be some other options. – dotcrash Aug 14 '12 at 0:07
