Staffers at the Trump White House have been using an app called Confide. Confide allows users to send encrypted messages that that disappear after they are read. Here are some other popular messaging services and whether they offer end to end encryption. Of course you must keep your device secure as well. The fact that these are being used by the White House does raises a question about why public servants would be using a tool that destroys the public record.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
