Internet is not a secure place to disclose your personal information and that’s something which we all know. But if we look around, then there’s a huge bubble of social media growing around us. We all are a part of it and the world beyond is blurred right now. So we don’t what this all is leading up to and there might be a pointy edge just a few seconds away from us that we don’t know about. But when this bubble will burst up, your bits of information will spread away so far that you won’t be able to track them back ever. So what’s better is either to get out from that bubble or make sure that there is a protective coating to save the explosion. Leaving the problem behind if you don’t know the answer isn’t the right solution. So I guess we need some protection!


Well, I am talking about the latest Android app called SJ IM that has been developed by SJ Software. The app is compatible with all the devices running Android 2.2 or any later version of the OS. So it almost covers all the Android devices currently in the market.

Some of the popular internet messengers are Google Talk, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo Messenger, etc. While the developers of these messengers always try to provide you with the best security, there are always some loop holes to enter from. So your information and files are always susceptible to be attacked. SJ IM uses PGP encryption to generate the highest level of protection possible. So when you open the app for the first time, you’ll be asked to create a PGP key. In includes some of your personal info and a password which is the basis of your security. So better choose it carefully!


After you’re done with your PGP key and jabber account, you can add as many profiles as you want for different messengers such as Google Talk, AIM, etc. You can use all these IMs under one roof and it’s pretty convenient. You don’t need to install different apps for all of them. Your data is safer and secure than ever. Moreover, the OTR technology allows you to have personal conversations encrypted so that no one else can read them. Even the files you’ll send will be sent via third-party services zipped with a password to unlock. So how can you expect such a sincere child to talk to a stranger!

The experience is amazing using SJ IM. It’s easy to get used to and when all the major IMs are available at the same place, where else to go? The design is neat, colours are elegant and there is a sense of satisfaction.

So overall, I can say that this is a must have app if you often use IMs. The app is available for Rs. 300.36 in the Play Store. The price might seem heavy on your pocket. But isn’t your personal information worth that?

Pros: convenient to use; neat and elegant design; supports all popular IMs; PGP and OTR encryption.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
