    It has been years since I had to deal with HIPAA regulations....
    You will need to see which apps store messages on third-party servers and which ones don't.
    Encryption of the messages would always be a good idea, but not a popular feature by the creators.
    Most likely, the biggest requirement will be a security lock on your phone if not on the texting app.
