Can SMS message be password protected?

Similar to Documents password protection, could it enhance security?

Example :

Person A sends SMS message to Person B. While composing a message to Person B he/She adds password and sends SMS message to Person B.

Person B receives the SMS message from Person A but cannot read the SMS message from Person A unless & until Person B enters the password to retrieve the SMS message.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi prashantakerkar,

You can download apps that'll protect your SMS inbox. I can see the purpose behind something like this, as it adds an extra layer of protection. However, if you need a password to access your phone, and a password to access your secured inbox, a third layer is bit extra.

If you want something more secure, I'd suggest another means of delivering a message. Maybe an encrypted peer-to-peer message app like Whatsapp or BBM.

Thank you.

Do you feel a SMS spam filter can be built similar to email spam filter?

Thanks & Regards,

Yes, but as before, it would have to be intercepted with an app first. Reason is because out of the box, Android does not have these features in its stock text messaging app.
