There is a plan under consideration to block text messages from your phone when those text messages speak against the government, against pharmaceutical companies or against the so-called “vaccines” associated with Covid-19.
A good encrypted text messaging app for Android and Apple phones is Signal. Both the sending device AND the receiving device must use Signal if you want to keep the message confidential.
I use it exclusively. For encrypted email I use Protonmail.com. Both are free and I recommend that you install them both today. You can install them on your phone AND your PC, which I do.
