Phones are INSECURE and have always been. Period.

Just a reminder from few years ago (if you thought that "modern
technology" could save you):

If you want a _really_ secure phone line, you need security
in _all_ involved aspects (terminal devices, connection line,
surrounding and so on).

And don't place it the same room where your "Smart TV" and
your new "intelligent thermostat" are happily listening.
Don't expect a smartphone (or a web app) to solve all the
involved problems with "the one solution". :-)
