Finally! Skype is about to become secure.
In a move that surprised many, Microsoft and Open Whisper Systems (makers of the Signal app) announced today they are partnering to bring support for end-to-end (E2E) encrypted conversations to Skype.
The new feature, called Skype Private Conversations has been rolled out for initial tests with Skype Insider builds.
Private Conversations will encrypt Skype audio calls and text messages. Images, audio or video files sent via Skype’s text messaging feature will also be encrypted.
