Threema is the world’s best-selling secure messenger and keeps your data out
of the hands of hackers, corporations, and governments. The service can be used
completely anonymously. Threema is open source, allows to make end-to-end
encrypted voice and video calls, and offers every feature...
Best messaging app for security
If you want a pretty messenger, stick with the Messages app, Facebook, or maybe Signal - they’re all “secure”. If you want a secure messenger, get Threema. It sends messages securely from device to device, not user to user, so you need to think a bit differently about using it, but that difference in thinking is “this message is encrypted on my device and sent to that other device, which I’ve confirmed is the correct device by scanning its barcode”. This is handy (and one of my main uses) because you know that your snarky comment isn’t going to show up on your wife’s computer as she’s projecting her screen in the conference room at work. True device to device encryption, plus the company’s location in Switzerland with physical control over its servers, combines to make this a very secure messaging app. Even if you’re just using it to send snarky notes about employers, it’s worth the price.
Great...needs a few changes
I love Threema and the spirit of the developers' vision. I really trust this company. They just need a few additions. Needs a delete for everyone feature. This is very necessary for a number of reasons: error in typing, privacy, etc. Needs to make indicating bubbles of phone calls less intrusive, as they take up the same or more space as actual messages. Need conference calling. Near perfect app. Thank you. The ability to quote a picture...any message to or from. Also read receipts in group chats. Actually, this might catch on in the USA. I've got people looking at it. But still need to differentiate calls from actual messages in appearance.
An inconvenient communication app
Such an inconvenient communication app for voice-messages. It doesn’t support running in iOS-background, which means it can’t automatically download voice-messages or images you received. Every time you get a incoming-voice notification, you have to open this app and tap the voice-message you received and wait for a long while to download it. If you don’t live in Europe, I strongly suggest you not to using it, because downloading voices-messages from Threema’s sever takes really long time. Not even to mention that if you receive more than one voice-messages, you have to tap them each one by one to download, waiting and waiting for these downloading processes. Too annoying!! What an era do we live in? Almost every communication app is now having this feature downloading media automatically.
Great at security, mostly great at the rest
This looks like a messaging app written by people who take security seriously. Well done. I’m only taking off one star because the onboarding process was a mess. At one point, you’re asked to enter a password, and again to verify it. That’s all fine, but the password fields are so far down the page that the on-screen keyboard completely covers the second one — and the page doesn’t allow scrolling vertically! Eventually I discovered a workaround (tap Passwords, then Cancel, then tap the second password field, then blindly type your password on the keyboard that appears). But this is really something that should have been caught in testing. This makes it impossible (AFAICT) to paste a password from the clipboard, which discourages the use of strong passwords from a password manager. And that’s not good for security. Aside from that one major inconvenience, though, this looks like a great app.
Get this app now
I’ve been using Threema for years It is by far the most safe and secure messaging app out there Once you pay for the original app, there are never any additional charges for any messages, pictures, videos, or texts sent... ever!! I used to pay a lot of money to send even just one text message to family members in Europe. Not anymore.. I hear this app is very popular in Europe, but somehow I don’t think it will ever catch on in the United States. But if you do purchase it, it is definitely worth it. You will need to tell your friends and your family members about the app because they need to have the app as well in order to communicate with you. Once anyone else has this app it’s the only way I communicate with them. They begin to use it too and it becomes your normal way of sending messages back and forth. Almost all of my text messages to people I know, go through Threema. Get this app and spread the word. Remember freedom means “No Big Brother!”
Good but no “edit message” function
This could be the perfect secure messaging app if it were “fat-fingered perfectionist”-proof :D, as having to copy, delete, paste, edit, then resend just to “edit” a single sent message is so much hassle compared to just hitting an edit-button. For now I and my similarly fat-fingered perfectionist friends will be begrudgingly sticking with the less secure alternatives for now. If this is ever implemented, I will start recommending Threema, as otherwise the UX feels solid, better than Wire’s and even Signal’s. By the way, if the concern is with potentially allowing people to edit maliciously, maybe a mutual-consent-based “Allow editing of sent messages in chats” switch is an appropriate solution. Or perhaps just an “Edit history” list.
While threema works overall, I’m less than impressed with the audio overrides and the disconnects. If I’m on a call and play a video, the call will completely disconnect. If I’m playing music and merely open the app, it will kill my audio for about 5 seconds, and then artificially lower the volume. Drives me bonkers. I’m constantly having to go into my settings and revoke (or grant) permission to the microphone depending on what-else I’m doing. Very annoying and detracts from the usefulness of the app itself. I’ve contacted support and the only thing they could tell me was to upgrade to the newest version of it. I’m already running the newest version. It’s the only message app that has been incapable of handling audio in a competent way. Very disappointing to say the least.
Best app in the entire App Store
No need to give your phone number out to anyone. THREEMA gives you an ID which you use instead of your phone number. No other secure messaging application allows you to protect your phone number in this way. Also, because you pay for THREEMA you know exactly why they’re doing what they’re doing. For money from you. You’re paying and this your data isn’t the price. I’ve been with THREEMA since the start and their developers come with constant improvements and updates. I love this app because it means freedom.
Great but behind on features
This app is great for secure messaging and anonymity. I wish this app used a in-app purchase model so it could be downloaded for free to increase the user base. They could then charge an in-app purchase for features like voice calling, group chat, or other features that could be limited but allow for basic secure messaging for new users. However, for being a paid app, it seems to lag in features compared to competing products. I hope they add or fix some of these items: - Perfect Forward Secrecy on the end to end layer - self destructing and deleting messages - video calling - allow the user to do other messaging while a call is in progress.
Love Threema but,
I’m giving Threema 5 STARS after it becomes open source but, what’s the point of all these features that added recently and Threema still blocked in many countries, what’s the point if I can’t call, text or send photos to anyone in my list. they can’t use Threema without a VPN 90% of my friends switched to another IM app because it’s available in their country’s that’s why Threema is not popular so until you find a way to use it without a VPN then we can enjoy all features otherwise it’s useless.
Thank you Threema - you saved Slovakia
Your app revelaed the biggest political scandal in the Slovak Republic history. All you need is to break inside (it took police some months to do it - you might work on more secure standards) of one of the biggest influential oligarchs who used it for long time. Now all Slovakia could read the messages and reveal the biggest political and economical thefts made by politicians, oligarchs, mobs. So big thank you for liberating our country. (all in the news last two weeks)
Best app there is
Don’t have to use a phone number to setup an account. That’s so massively important. They actually charge for the app which is a major positive if you care about what their motivations should be. Privacy first and then they basically try to copy WhatsApp on features. Always a little behind on the feature list but you’re choosing privacy over minor functionality bonuses. My favorite app and I couldn’t support this company or their vision more.

Excellent call quality and stability. Highly recommended!!!
We are calling half away around the world with very limited internet connection speeds, I mean very limited. We are amazed each time how clear and immediate the conversation can be. The stability is outstanding as well, calls are only dropped if I accidentally touch the wrong button!
Couple of touches are missing, such as video call support and if developer can enable sent message edit function for short period of time i.e you can edit your sent message within first 20 seconds, then would be awesome. Another thing, instead of tap and select, slide right/left would be much easier.
