Silent Text is a fully secure messenger app, which uses the popular P2P encryption technology (messages are not stored on servers but in the gadget’s cache).
The app was made three years ago by three developers, two of who used to be Seals.
The service allows sending text apps, locations, and files of up to 100 MB.
For those users who are focused on data security, the developers have implemented an option of clearing the message history. You can program data to self-destruct automatically, after a fixed time period.
The app works only on iOS and Android. Among the drawbacks are paid subscription ($10 per months) and a too complicated interface (when signing in, a user has to enter an activation code).
