Secure text messaging.
Text messages are encrypted by network providers while in the air. Furthermore, mobile operators put very strict controls in place to prevent the misuse of SMS technology. This means that they can only be read by the sender and recipient. It’s highly unlikely for your texts to be intercepted or read while being delivered. Nevertheless, we advise you not to send sensitive information that would, in isolation, compromise your security and accounts.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are text messages secure?
Yes and no.
In theory, SMS is not secure for several reasons. First, SMS transmission protocols (SMPP, SS7) are not encrypted. Second, as long as the information remains on the handset itself, it can be compromised by individuals who have the unique identifying factor: the mobile number. Finally, SMS is vulnerable to attacks through the radio interface (used to deliver texts). A highly specialised hacker could inject fake radio signals, but the knowledge and effort required for such a thing is significant.
While secure SMS messaging is not absolute, the peculiarities of this technology and its networks make it extremely difficult for hackers and data thieves to target. Even without encryption, there are many reasons that secure text messaging can be deployed as a tool for sending sensitive information:
- Overwhelming statistics demonstrate that a majority of phones remain in the possession of one individual while active.
- Many online services now use multi-factor authorisation processes. The confidential information (e.g., confirmation codes) sent via text represents only one factor of the authentication process, which is not enough to compromise the security of an account.
- P2P and A2P messaging has reached colossal volumes. Eight trillion text messages are sent every year. This means that interception without targeting a specific phone number is impossible.
Are text messages safer than email?
As previously mentioned, text messages are encrypted while in the air, and only a high-level system administrator can gain access to them. In contrast, emails move through thousands of internet servers that are controlled by the government and private-sector organisations.
Should I encrypt my text messages?
We believe that SMS encryption is not necessary for SMS marketing campaigns. The whole point of text messages created for advertising purposes is to be read by as many people as possible, so encryption does not make sense.
Encryption should only be used for transmitting classified information about upcoming products, private employee communication, exchanging files or information with financial data, etc.
