CyanogenMod to have built in text message encryption system

There is a report that Cyanogenmod will be getting encrypted text messaging:

Even though popular messaging apps like BBM, iMessage, Google Hangouts, Whatsapp etc. use some form of security, they still are not fully secure. Reports of government surveillance on servers of these services have further increased the concerns.

Cyanogen Inc, the company behind the very popular custom Android ROM CyanogenMod, announced that its users will soon be able to communicate securely with the integrated encryption system for messages.

Nice to see another option for secure communications.
