    BBM is encrypted, but uses a single Key... at this point I expect most governmental agencies have access to it. But your neighbor probable doesn't...

    BBM consumer on both Android and BB10 is only encrypted to and from the server with standard TLS. However, on BBOS and BB10 devices they also use the "global encryption key" that Dunt Dunt Dunt mentioned. Being a global key shared with all BBOS and BB10 devices, BB naturally has it and can share it.


    Therefore, BBM Consumer is not secure from eavesdropping by BB themselves or anyone who asks them for lawful access.

    Signal is end-to-end encrypted. BBM consumer is not.

    I would steer clear of BBM Consumer.
