* While these features are designed to remove the message or picture the recipient’s BBM chat view, they do not prevent recipients from capturing an image of the content by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device. Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view, but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.

BBM -Original and the best
My go to App for secure messaging. Would be nice if it was as functional as it is on BB10. But it's understandable that Blackberry will try to steer you to their platform. Really can't see why it's not used more than it is, it's the original secure messaging App. But given a choice, I'm on BBM more than any other messaging App. Nice interface, but really poor selection of stickers. But you don't use BBM for the sticker collection....... Highly recommended.
My favorite app to chat
This is one of my favorite apps to chat with my friends and co workers .its simple and works great also very fast . Has a great couple of very secure options and functionalities. The only bad thing I could say about it is when you go to use a " sticker" it offers to you buy some others and its there always is like it try to force me to buy new stickers
Needs strong end to end encryption
I don't see end to end strong encryption listed as a feature. Without this feature, implemented properly where no one but sender and receiver have access to encryption keys, it is possible for the company behind BBM, hackers, government agencies and other third parties, to read/monitor/log the contents of users messages. Alternative messaging apps that feature end to end encryption include Threema, reTXT, and Bleep. There are others but they typically require your real phone number to register and full access to your entire contacts book.
