It has been reported that the European Commission will introduce a draft law on security and privacy rules in the coming months. This will aim to ensure that voice calls and instant messaging via the internet will be protected in the same way SMS text messages, landline call and mobile calls are in the EU.

This would mean that services providing internet calls and messaging would also have to comply with new EU regulations on complying with security services and their use of customer data to make money.

Jan Philipp Albrecht, a high-profile German MEP endorsing the new data privacy laws, explained that encryption was a priority for him after the Edward Snowden revelations.

The new rules are likely to please European telecom giants who wish for the playing field to be leveled so that they can compete with Silicon Valley giants such as WhatsApp and Facebook Inc.

Our messaging apps, BotherMe&U Reminder Messenger, Ecards& LoveNotes Messenger and SelfieCheckr Secure Messenger all have end-to-end encryption on all chats, meaning that the messages can only be read and accessed on the sending and receiving devices.

This means that messages sent using our apps cannot be hacked or intercepted, guaranteeing your privacy. We also do not collect any data from our users, so you can rest assured your privacy is protected when using our apps.

BotherMe&U Reminder Messenger, Ecards& LoveNotes Messenger and SelfieCheckr Secure Messenger are available on the Google Play Store, the Apple store, the Samsung Galaxy Store, Opera Mobile Store, Xiaomi and Amazon .
