Be sure no one else can see your mobile messages. Use surespot and everything you send can only be read by the person you sent it to. Period. Everything sent using surespot is end-to-end encrypted with symmetric-key encryption (256 bit AES-GCM) using keys created with 521 bit ECDH shared secret derivation, but you wont notice because security in surespot is built-in, not a layer over something else. Be confident sending private information and pictures, you have control over your messages, when you delete a sent message it will be removed from the receivers phone and images are not shareable unless you make them so. Multiple identities allow you to be who you want with just who you want, and if anyone gets annoying you can block them. Surespot does not require or store your phone number or email address and we don't mine your data, no advertisements here!
Encrypted Voice Messaging. If your eyes or hands are busy, your keyboard too cumbersome, or you just want to say it instead of type it- voice messages are sent with the same exceptional end to end encryption as the rest of your surespot messages. Simply hold down the microphone button to record your voice message and release to send. Activate the feature from within surespot to start sending voice messages (it is free to receive and play them) and enjoy speaking freely.
Surespot uses your mobile data plan and Wi-Fi so you don’t get texting charges, especially important for those friends in other countries.

Ratings and Reviews
Over the past few days I've tried a number or encrypted messengers including Wickr, telegram, etc., and this is the one I like the best because it supports push notifications, you can set an account name that is not associated with a phone number, you can erase messages from the other parties record, and it's simple to use.
There are some things that need improvement, though.
1) When beginning to type a text, the ipad keyboard often covers over the textbox, so I can't see what I'm writing. I have to tap in and out of the textbox a few times to fix it. This is really annoying!
2) There is a limit to the length of the text, which would mean this review, for example, would not be able to be sent in one text, but I would have to copy and paste different sections of it and send multiple texts, this a crippling feature for me.
3) Although there are push notifications, it doesn't display the beginning of the message, but only that there is a notification.
4) multiple ringtones and backgrounds would be nice, but not vital.
Works just fine, except for one thing…
I had lingering problems with my iPhone after repeated restore attempt, and was forced to have it reformatted. Although my iPhone is now usable, when I tried to use the surespot app, I found that I could not use my login credentials, unless I had saved it somewhere on the phone or on Google Drive, which did not happen. As it stands, my only real option is to start from scratch, meaning that unless the next update includes an option to manually enter the login credentials, I'm out of luck. This lack of a feature ruins an otherwise great app, and has to be fixed in the next update.
Developer Response ,
Any option to recover your login without your private keys (which only you control) would severely compromise the security of surespot.
Good safe alternative, could use a few things
This is a really great substitute for other more unsecure apps. I have a few suggestions - can someone develop lift-to-listen for voice chats so they don't always play from the speaker? An additional feature I'd suggest is stickers. Some friends and I are switching to this app from another one, so developing these features would be worth it for this app.
