    This only exists on jailbroken iphones.

    the alternate is to setup the passcode lock and secure the entire phone

    What functionality are you looking for?

    If you are looking to be able to remotly wipe your device there is services out there that will work with non jailbroken devices.

    If you are looking for like antivirus for your phone that doesn't exist nor is it really needed if your phone isn't jailbroken

    If your looking for something else please let us know and we will do our best to help you

    Are you wanting to encrypt the messages you send out or are you just wanting it so that if someone picks up your phone and goes to your messages that they cant read them?

    does your friend have an iphone.

    if one exists, you want a public/private encrypting application that's password protected.

    your friend would need the same

    I think what you're looking for is PrivateTIP. A great new app.
    This will enable you the secret messaging you asked about.


    if you're just into security in general you can check 1password,

    and here's a usefull link regarding iPhone security (mobile security is my main expertise) :

    it does work for sure, I use it as well. Just make sure you have a txt'g plan that includes MMS or your will be paying a lot for that "free" security app.
