IOS – Is iMessages secure


What security does iMessages provide or is it open and subject to the security of the connection used to send the messages?

Best Answer

iMessages are transmitted with TLS (SSL) encryption, and the saved messages on your devices will be encrypted (like all other data), but the message contents themselves aren't encrypted. I'm not aware that Apple has publicly stated whether they store any iMessages on their servers, and how they might be encrypted.
