I was wondering if a secure messaging app like TigerText is really hack proof?

The messages are encrypted and they auto-delete, but it that enough to make it hack proof, or can hackers break the encryption and un-delete the messages?

Probably from most hackers. But even iMessage, encrypted and long thought to be safe, may have been breached by the NSA.

Thanks for the reply. Well, hopefully with encryption and auto-delete, Tigertext should be fairly secure to most, but the NSA... is that really part of our government? That act more like aliens from outer space.
