A secure text messaging application for Android.
TextSecure is a replacement for the standard text messaging application, allowing you to send and receive text messages as normal. Additionally, TextSecure provides:
- Local Encryption -- All text messages, regardless of destination, that are sent or received with TextSecure are stored in an encrypted database on your phone.
- Wire Encryption -- When communicating with a recipient who is also using TextSecure, text messages are encrypted during transmission.
Instructions on how to build TextSecure, as well as on how to setup an IDE to modify it can be found in the "BUILDING.md" file.
