Hi I am thinking of installing this on my phone and pc for communicating with friends abroad. What's your experience, if any, and is it safe? Thanks

It's as safe as any. If the teenagers I know are anything to go by, it's a bit old hat, like Facebook.

Probably about the right time to start using it

I've used it for a couple of years and it is good. The features just get better and the added bonus is your messages are encrypted.

As long as the recipient has it installed and will"pair" with you. You can text, send photos and have free calls.

To fully answer your question, I use it on phone.

Thanks for all the replies. Will get it on phone to be followed by PC.

I use it on my mobile to keep in touch with family members abroad.

How secure is it? I don't know, but it is encrypted end to end, so it should be reasonably OK.

Personally, I haven't had any issues with it.
