CrypticSMS - An Android Tool To Encrypt/Decrypt SMS

Yes, you read that right.. CrypticSMS is an android app that can encrypt/decrypt SMS. The app is not very difficult to use, the simple user interface allows anyone with a basic knowledge of encryption to use the app.

It supports the following ciphers:
  • Backwards Cipher
  • Reverse Alphabet Cipher

Note: This app uses an old encryption technique, so you might find it difficult to use in real life situations.

Anyway, today I'm going to show you how to use Cryptic SMS app:

1. Download and install Cryptic SMS on your android device.
