Are Your Text Messages Secure?

By Chad No comments

Hipaa texting

I have wondered if I have secure text messages. Recently I learned that text messages are not recorded, just as cell phone calls are not recorded. Messages sent over text are secure text and there is no central repository that these messages are kept in, so when they are deleted they are gone! This information is good when it comes to sharing information that should be kept private. For example, if a doctor’s office would like to send a secure text about a patient they can do so without violating privacy codes that are common in the medical field. With technology expanding to be more convenient with easy access to all people, it is a definite that the eastern medicine should be just as or more technologically advanced. Secure text messages can increase privacy and convenience to people in all situations.
