BlackBerry's ultra-secure chat gives each message its own security key

                             BBM Channels on BlackBerry 10 and Android

Chat platforms like BBM and iMessage are usually very secure , since they're encrypted end-to-end . But , they still have a glaring issue : if intruders do crack the code , they can see everything you've mentioned . That's where BlackBerry's soon-to-launch BBM Protected comes in . As the company demonstrated at its BlackBerry Experience Washington event ( CrackBerry's video is below ) , the new service makes it extremely difficult to spy on an entire discussion . Each message features its own random encryption key ; even a very smart data thief would certainly get one tidbit at a time , so it could take ages to piece together a full chat . 

BBM Safeguarded will only be available for corporate-controlled BlackBerry products when it launches as part of an enterprise suite in June , even though that will include everything running the now-ancient BlackBerry OS 6 or higher . The chat client won't be accessible for personal phones running BlackBerry Balance until early fall , while Android and iOS users will have to wait until late fall or early winter . All the same , it might be worth controlling out if you're really , truly worried that someone is watching your private discussions .
