Change the default signing and encryption option

Your BlackBerry® smartphone is designed to use the default signing and encryption option when you send a message to a contact that you haven't previously sent a message to or received a message from. Otherwise, your smartphone uses the message history to suggest a signing and encryption option. You can set your smartphone to use the default signing and encryption option for all your outgoing messages instead.
  1. On the home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.
  2. Click Device > Advanced System Settings > Default Services.
  3. Change the Default Encoding field.
    • To use the default signing and encryption option for all outgoing messages, set the Outgoing Message Encoding Suggestion field to Use Default Encoding.
    • To use the signing and encryption option based on the message history, set the Outgoing Message Encoding Suggestion field to Use Message History.
  4. Press the Menu key > Save.
