DEDOC Chat is a highly-secure text messaging encoder and decoder. The app works as expected and is very high quality. Developers may wish to consider a more detailed help/tutorial section, however. It’s always nice to have a demonstration or see details about how to use the app.
This app is not intended to be educational.
While DEDOC Chat is not really intended to be entertaining, it could be very useful in social settings if the users do not wish their messages to be available to just anyone. This feature is helpful for sharing personal information, private things such as passwords or banking information, and for keeping information within a small circle, such as when planning a surprise party or when choosing gifts for others.
This app is free on the App Store and includes 7 types of encryption for users. There are also many other encryptions available for in-app purchase at prices starting at ninety-nine cents, as well as a full “code book” with even more complex codes available for $5.98. If privacy is important to you, then this app will certainly help.
This app is not really intended to be child-friendly, and in fact, could be used by children or teens to keep unsavory secrets from their parents, which may not be something a parent would wish to encourage. However, if you and your child use it correctly, it could be a lot of fun and add an air of mystery and importance to your personal communications.
