    According to this score card bbm scored lower even then iMessage, however a good part of their scoring consisted of how open the software is...which bbm obviously scored lower because of it being developed in house, still i was disappointed to see that the providers potentially can read the message.

    I'm kind of like eh. Half of the rating criteria ask, "Is the code open source?"
    Not saying that's it the most secure or least secure but I thought the test would be a technical one.

    If you want to hide BBM from BlackBerry you have to use BBM Protected. It is available, but at extra cost.

    Open source is important to the EFF, but as we have seen, open source is not a guarantee unless it has been audited. The top two products have been.

    This^
    I am disappointed to see that bbm doesn't encrypt en route through the providers networks, would like to see them change that...otherwise the security in bbm is very minimal and certainly less than I'd believed and hoped.
