CyanogenMod just got a lot more interesting to users looking to maintain their privacy when sending messages to friends and family. The team behind the popular custom OS announced Tuesday night that they are bringing secure messaging to CM’s Android ROMs.
Similar to iMessage in iOS, the new messaging plugin would let users send encrypted messages to other CyanogenMod users. Android and CyanogenMod developer Koush describes it as “basically PGP (encryption + authenticity) for text messages, built into the system.” The plugin is built into the CyanogenMod framework and would be available to third-party apps. You can read more about the PushSMS plugin in this Google+ post and check out the source code on github.
