What is the difference between BBM Protected and BBM Enterprise?

Formerly, BBM Protected was an added feature of BBM that provided enhanced security and encryption to BBM chats. Now, the protected chat experience is available in the BBM Enterprise app.

If you’re a current BBM Protected user on BBM, switching to the BBM Enterprise app is easy: simply download the BBM Enterprise app on your device and sign in using your existing BlackBerry ID. All your BBM contacts are added in BBM Enterprise automatically.

With BBM Enterprise, you can chat with colleagues that use BBM Enterprise, or with friends and family that use BBM.

If you don’t switch to the BBM Enterprise app, and you upgrade to a new version of BBM, your chats will no longer be secured and encrypted by BBM Protected.
