Safest messaging apps

Whatsapp is owned by Facebook so that can't be trusted. Apparently signal and telegram are safe. Anyone with more knowledge on those kind of things have any input on what are the safest apps as far as privacy goes?

Just tell the wife that your phone is your business.

Signal is probably the best on the market right now. Wikr used to be my go to but they updated it a bit ago which made it a pain in the ass to use. Signal is easy, intuitive, and works. It also has a 'disappearing messages' option which lets you set a time limit for how long the message will stay there once it's been seen - anywhere from a few seconds to a week. 

Highly recommend

Do I have to give it all kinds of permissions just to use it like other apps?

^It requests permission to access things like your contacts, photos, etc. in order to enable some features. Standard stuff. But you don't have to give it access to everything, if you don't want to. You obviously won't be able to use every feature, though, if that's the case. For example, you have to give it access to your photos if you want to send something from your camera roll.

these are all still app to app, correct?

Drug dealing app of choice.

Kik wasn't secure in the same way that Signal and Wikr are. Just somewhat anonymous. 

There's a new social network out there. MeWe.

IDK about secure. You'll have to check it.
