Silence Build StatusTranslation Status

Silence (formerly SMSSecure) is an SMS/MMS application that allows you to protect your privacy while communicating with friends.

Using Silence, you can send SMS messages and share media or attachments with complete privacy.

Get it on F-Droid Get it on Google Play

Features:

  • Easy. Silence works like any other SMS application. There's nothing to sign up for and no new service your friends need to join.
  • Reliable. Silence communicates using encrypted SMS messages. No servers or internet connection required.
  • Private. Silence uses the Signal encryption protocol to provide privacy for every message, every time.
  • Safe. All messages are encrypted locally, so if your phone is lost or stolen, your messages are protected.
  • Open Source. Silence is Free and Open Source, enabling anyone to verify its security by auditing the code.

Project goals

This is a fork of TextSecure (now Signal) that aims to keep the SMS encryption that TextSecure removed for a variety of reasons.

Silence focuses on SMS and MMS. This fork aims to:

  • Keep SMS/MMS encryption
  • Drop Google services dependencies (push messages are not available in Silence)
  • Integrate upstream bugfixes and patches from TextSecure

Contributing

See CONTRIBUTING.md for how to contribute code, translations, or bug reports.

Instructions on how to setup a development environment and build Silence can be found in BUILDING.md.
