Default Blackberry Messanger on my Tour

Please Login to Remove!

I am not certain about using my BB Messanger - is it hacker free? I have read threads that say it is very difficult to hack a BB but I want to make certain. I am new to the BB and don't like my personal chats out for the world. Paranoid - maybe, but in my line of work I don't want my info exposed to the world.

Any words of advice?

Peace of mind restored.

BB Messenger is probably as secure as anything like it can be. You, or the person you are chatting with, is the bigger risk. Use a password on your device with a reasobably short timeout and don't leave it laying around.
