  1. Hello,

    I'm looking for a really secure messenger that can be used for quick transfer of any type of files (including .zip folders)? Any advice or recommendation will be appreciated.

    Thanks for the advice!
    I have already started using it but after making some tests, I think it it not as secure as it looks. It looks safe but if you send a Wireshark, you immediately understand that the messages you send go firstly to a server and after that to the receiver. Even if you send a message while the other part is offline and sign out from the messenger, as soon as he becomes online, he receives the message. This automatically means that there is a server in the middle.

    Try Telegram. Didn't test sending .zip, but it's surely more secure, than Skype or any other popular IM's.

    I read about Telegram. Has anyone heard about it? Any opinions?

    It is more secure than Skype for sure but still there is a server where all the information is stored.

    In my opinion, it is not as secure as it has been advertised ( I made a few tests with Wireshark). There is no folder transfer as well, only file transfer.

    Yeah, Whatsapp is good for messaging.
