    Can the BES admin read BBM Protected? I have BBM Protected and I really don't want admin (or anyone) reading personal conversations with family. BBM Protected encrypts ALL chats end to end but I'm not sure if the BES admins hold the encryption keys.

    No. They cannot. The out of band encryption key is not known to them so the cannot decrypt your messages

    Can you provide a link for peace of mind? Not saying I don't believe you but I keep googling and can't find what I'm searching for.

    Try http://blogs.blackberry.com/2014/06/bbm-protected/

    Or http://bizblog.blackberry.com/2015/0...inkId=13013655

    They may not answer your exact question, but the users set the passphrase and the encryption/decryption is done at the device level. Therefore, your BES admin wouldn't be able to listen in because they have neither of those two key things (passphrase and your device).

    Has anyone had problems with bbm protected plus constantly reconnecting with the encryption? It keeps having to re-encrypt the conversation and my friends are getting mad.

    I experienced it on Thurs/Fri of last week. Didn't occur yesterday. Also it seemed to only affect people on iOS. I haven't communicated with anyone on Android during that time. No problems encountered with BB10 contacts at all.
