Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Can SMS be encrypted?.

Are there any Advantages?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Yes, of course. As a general rule any digital data file can be encrypted for safety, prying eyes and secure communications.

The advantage for doing so is to increase security and enhance more secure communications with your colleagues.

The disadvantage may be in the cost of encryption software, maintenance and decoding time.
